It’s daunting to create a writing blog. What do I have to say that hasn’t already been said before? And what gives me the chops to be talking about this topic? Maybe I should just stop, kick back, grab a delicious glass of red and watch Netflix instead? Or better still, read a book.
I could have surrendered to that taunting naysayer on my shoulder years ago, when I first put pen to paper, fingers to keyboard. But I’m glad I didn’t. Writing has become a passionate pursuit, providing me with moments of utter exhilaration and complete despair. Quite a roller coaster ride, really. A bit like life! But for me, at least, the highs far outweigh the lows.
I’ve been fortunate enough to benefit from the wisdom of other writers, passionate writers who’ve been generous with their time. I think most of us writers are like that though. They want to give back, ‘pay it forward’, impart what they’ve learned. And that’s what I hope to do with this blog. I’d love to connect with you here, so please feel free to comment and share your wisdom too.
