I am on a crash course. I’d like to think my life is careening about wildly from one hair raising experience to another destined for an tragic end in a wild and fiery crash, but unfortunately not. Instead, the crash course is learning to be a creative writer. The raison d’être or reason for being of this blog is to document that process.
It’s a crash course because I’m getting a late start. I spent a long career in another field and it’s only since I left it that I’ve become serious about creative writing. As such, I don’t have decades to hone my skills. I’m also aware that it will take a lot of writing on my part before I can produce anything of merit. I would love to write a best selling novel, what writer wouldn’t, but I know that it would be a disappointment as a first effort. It’s something that I need to work up to.
I invite you to take part in my learning process or just in the parts that interest you. Perhaps you’re starting out as well. Hopefully, my experiences can be of some assistance. Maybe a few of them will be hair raising.
