Hello, Dear Reader!
Welcome to my fiction blog. I have to be honest, I set up this blog with many dreams for what it would become. I tried finding the “perfect niche,” I tried doing what everyone else was doing, and I tried posting about things I was vaguely interested in. All to find out that I didn’t want to do what everyone else was doing… I couldn’t narrow in on a niche that suited me because I find life so multi-faceted and the world so marvelously interesting.
I kept coming back to the one thing I have been passionate about for over a decade: writing. I find words to be powerful in their ability to transport us places we’ve never been, and in the way that they can introduce us to people the likes of which we have never known. Writing fiction is really a labor of love born from my addiction to reading it, and I know that I’m nowhere near where I need to be to get my work published. However, the journey starts somewhere, and I’ve chosen this blog.
Right now the blog is going to be dedicated to my short fiction snippets and a crappy first draft of my work in progress. If you enjoy it, I’m humbled. If you hate it.. I am also humbled. I simply appreciate that you took the time to give me a minute or two of your day.
If you’ve ever been a blogger and given it up or you’ve never started it for fear that it wouldn’t be good enough, let me tell you here and now that it will be, if you keep at it. Don’t let the fear of choosing a narrow niche or not being a good photographer or not being pretty enough, fashionable enough, thin enough, or talented enough EVER stop you from answering a calling. There were days I thought all of those things.. and I know there are more in the future for me. But there’s so much out there to be gained by following our hearts, and for me that means keeping this blog. So that’s what I plan to do.
Thank you, and I hope to hear from you soon.
