It Begins

Land in Between Lakes, Kentucky

I have put this off too long enough. For almost the past year I have written in a private journal. I rarely share any of my writing with anyone. But I feel the time has come that I take the next step and get what I have in the open. There are hundreds of thousands of blogs out there and I’m hoping that through my evolution as a writer I will be able to grab the attention of some you and hopefully I have something to offer you. We all have to start somewhere and this is how I chose to start. Its not really too important that you know who I am right now. I hope I will be able to show who and what I am all about in the future.

I can entrust you with one dream that I do have, which is to become a writer. I know its a tough gig, that I have a long uphill battle ahead of me, and the writing profession is evolving now and there is no clear cut way to make it. Though, I know one big thing to do is start writing and have others read what you have to say.

I will take you through my trials and errors as I try to make it as writer and as man in general. I will let you into my life and into my journey. I can’t forecast what direction this blog will go, but I can promise you that I won’t abandon it. I promise to be as real, truthful, and direct as I can be for whatever subject matter I chose to write about. The time for thinking about writing a blog for me is a over and the time to take the first step has come.

Like that old cliche proverb says. “The journey of a thousand miles starts with one step.”

Here’s to the first step that will lead to a lifetime of success and growth.
