As a practicing writer, one of the best decisions I’ve made was to start a blog. After blogging for over one year, the best part has been connecting with other bloggers. Many of you stop by each Friday, which I’m so grateful for, thank you.
Although we live miles and for some, oceans apart, each comment made reveals an additional tidbit of your personality, I love that. Many of you write for the pure enjoyment, many in hopes of publication and some because like breathing, you have to. I tend to fall into the latter category.
For me, the journey to become a better writer will never end. Writing will occupy my life until I reach an age or state of mind where I’m no longer able. As for now, there are two novels on my laptop, both of which require serious rewriting. I’ve had two short stories published, which was a complete surprise and then there’s my notebook of rejections. The notebook is a prized possession because it reveals the slow and steady progress I’ve made over the years.
Where are you now? Whether you’re a writer, photographer, artist or musician, share your experience so far in the journey…anything that comes to mind.
