Okay. First things first. As you can see by the title of this post this is not a blog. (But the more I think about it don't you only use the word "post" when describing a blog entry?) I don't know what a blog is, what it should look like, and more importantly how to write one. I feel like the Unfrozen Caveman Lawyer from that old SNL bit. But maybe I should tweak it just a little and make it Unfrozen Caveman Writer. "I don't know what a blog is! That word frightens and confuses me! I'm just a writer!"
I know what you're probably thinking. If this is not a blog why did I set up the page like a blog? Good question. But I don't have a good answer. All I can say is I want to write a journal. I've had a journal most of my life. And now instead of writing down my thoughts in one every night before I go to bed I'm going to write them down here.
Now, don't worry. You don't need to click off the page because the thought of reading all about the minutiae of my life fills you with dread. But please don't stay on this page if you're hoping to read something salacious that has happened to me. Remember, I'm a writer. All I do is write. And read. My life is pretty boring and uneventful.
But what's not boring and uneventful to me is the writing process. And I want to share with you the process that led me to write and ultimately publish my first book: Peas and Hambone Save Us All.
