Writers WRITE.

Welcome to my WordPress blog.

It’s amazing that it’s taken me so long to start a blog because I’ve been a writer for as long as I can remember.   Sometimes I think so fast that I can’t keep up.  Even typing 70 wpm isn’t enough because sometimes ideas fly out faster than I can capture them.  People have been telling me I’m a good writer, whatever that means, for as long as I can remember.  Writing has been in every job description I’ve had since 1991 and I’ve got a huge portfolio of pieces written and edited anonymously.  But does that make me a Writer?

Are you a writer if you don’t share the pieces you really care about with someone?  I’m not only talking about publishing your writing, because sharing could include friends, family members, or even a writing class.  Writing is a means of communication, and doesn’t communication beg feedback?  And isn’t that feedback essential to growth?  In grade school and college I published little things here and there, but then I lost faith, or courage, or both.  Perhaps when people stopped encouraging me I simply failed to encourage myself.  So, HELLO WORLD!  Here goes nothing.
