Welcome to my new blog and the first post.
Here is where I finally share with people that I am finally going to try to do; what I have always loved but never dared to confess. I am going to have a good old go at this writing business.
I have always loved reading others’ words and the sharing of their imaginations. I have written presentations, testimonies, speeches, the odd wedding poem… However, I have never been true to myself and pursued my love of writing.
We live in a world that values work and concrete proof of having a job that keeps a roof over our heads. Writing cannot always guarantee this, unless you get ‘lucky’, are exceptionally talented, or possibly both. I may not be either. I may one day be both. How will I ever know if I do not try?
I am finally placing a long-suppressed imagination that has been desperately seeking a voice, at the forefront. I am nervous and anxious but more than this, I am excited.
I may never be a famous author. There will be people who do not like what I write. I may sometimes not like what I write! But I love writing. I need to do what I love. I need to stop listening to the naysayers, including myself.
How do you measure writing success anyway? It has already given me a strong sense of purpose and satisfaction since I began, in earnest, a few months ago. Therefore, in my eyes, I have already succeeded.
This is a team effort!
Imagination now takes centre stage in my life. I hope to share with you and know your encouragement. Comments and constructive criticism are always very welcome with each blog and sharing of my writing. I need to start building my cheerleading squad! Get your pom poms out and let me see ’em!
P.S. Future blogs won’t always be so serious. That’s if I can master comedic writing skills…
P.P.S. Stop looking for the typos and grammatical errors. I know you’re looking…
