Well, I have to start somewhere. Here is as good a place as any. I've been reluctant to start blogging because, well, I don't really know why. It is a bit scary. I feel so naked. I mean, writing a novel is so much different in that I can hide behind my characters. Sure they're all some version of me, but there's a comfortable layer between me and the world called fiction. Don't get me wrong, writing fiction is HARD, and I've made every mistake in the book (I'll have to expound on that subject someday), none-the-less it's safe.
I have all these fears, like, what if I can't keep up the commitment? What if I make typos and grammar errors? Blah-blah...
But then I started thinking about the endless possibilities of what I can do and my heart beats faster. I want to write a diary from one of my main character's point of view, of her times in high school. I want to write about the funny things my children did growing up. I want to write about my adventures, hopes, dreams.
Well, here's to starting!
