I wanted to write a comment on a friend's blog. The format wouldn't allow me to leave my words of wisdom unless I picked which blog address I was writing from at that moment. This was very frustrating for me as I did not, at that time, possess a blog of my very own.
That has now changed.
People have been advising me for some time that as a writer, I was quite remiss for not having a blog. The concept rather boggled my mind. When I write, I agonize over each word. I consider words to be treasures. They should be used carefully and sparingly. How would I ever be able to part with words on a daily basis, in a way to really connect with a reader? I research and slowly bring together the plots, characters, and descriptions, allowing them to ferment in my imagination for days, weeks, months.
I intend to explore the stories I am working on and the stories of daily life that I encounter amongst friends, family, co-workers, and acquaintances.
I want to be something of a tourist, writing to share life experiences with my community. An accidental blogger, if you will.
