As writers, we’re all on our individual paths. Our journeys towards whatever goal we each have are chock-full of good days, bad days, ups, downs, twists and turns.
Despite knowing this is not an easy thing to do, we soldier on. There are countless obstacles, pitfalls and other hazards to slow us down, test our confidence and push our endurance to the extreme.
The one saving grace as we put ourselves through this sometimes hellish process is we don’t have to do it alone. There are lots of other writers out there struggling with the same problems, but it’s up to each of us to be willing to seek out help from those other writers.
That’s part of the reason why I started this blog. I wanted to write about my writing, and offer up what might be considered helpful advice or a word of encouragement to anybody willing to hear it.
To say this has been a positive and gratifying experience would be an understatement. I’ve been extremely fortunate to connect and establish good working relationships with a lot of talented writers, and hope the trend continues.
It’s great when somebody likes a post or makes a comment, or retweets or favorites the link on Twitter. Even if it’s just somebody checking out the blog for the first time, that’s pretty cool too.
I’m just a guy who likes to write, and is extremely glad to be part of a community of other writers just like me.
So thanks for…well, everything. I hope you’ve enjoyed it so far, and hope you’ll stick around.
