Today is February 4, 2012, and I am officially launching this website after numerous redesigns, stops and starts, and questions about what direction it should take. It will chronicle my journey as a writer, be a storefront for my e-books, discuss upcoming projects, house writing samples, serve as my home base, and perhaps serve as inspiration to my peers.
As I detail in my forthcoming e-book, The Deathbed Mindset, I am finally using my time in a fulfilling manner and aware of how it is spent to ensure every moment is seized. Why it took me 39 years to understand how time can slip by, I’ll never know, but I am thankful that I finally did.
For as long as I can recall I’ve wanted to be a writer. How many times have you heard that before? I can’t accurately count how many times I’ve said it to others, but most especially, to myself. Excuse after excuse arose, procrastination reared its massive head, and life got in the way. Lame excuses, all. Our time is priceless; blink and it is gone. I will not let another moment go by without grabbing hold of my dream and holding on as best I can.
Am I a good writer? Will I ever be? I don’t know, but I’m going to give it a whirl. Will anyone read my drivel? I hope so. I’ve been working on the e-book I mentioned earlier for a few months, and the more I do it, the more I feel that writing is like breathing; it has that powerful an effect on me. The more I write, the better I’ll get. Sure, I’ll stumble a bit, but that’s to be expected. This is about creating, following my heart and mind to make words appear on paper or the screen. It is magic.
It would be an honor if you would join me on the ride as I create new e-books, blog about a writing life, and listen to the Muse sing her beautiful songs.
Thank you for stopping by and spending your valuable time.
