Good Morning –
Okay…. Well, this is it. My first real post. I’m nervous.
“What is this?”, One might ask. To be perfectly honest, I couldn’t give you a more informative answer than the next guy. What I can say is that I will be attempting to write about writing, as it is something, if anything, that I feel I can talk about. It also happens to allow me to trash whoever wrote something I don’t like. That could be fun.
I have thought long and hard about what maintaining a blog could mean. Really truly, I run the risk of talking to myself, writing in first person just for my own self to read later on. It’s true that there are countless unseen blogs all over the place, ranging from this topic to that. In a way, although massively frightening, it can be empowering. Because when the time comes, and you’re finally tasting success, you know that you overcame what a bunch of people couldn’t. That really does say something.
In an ideal world, it would be simple. One would have absolutely no trouble in being a instant, laughably famous hit. Every idea would be revolutionary. You would have 700 million followers, major advertisers, political/cultural influence. Not a single person would hate you. Ha. What a concept.
Alas, in an ideal world I wouldn’t learn anything. Nobody would. Without challenges, obstacles or impediments, nothing would make us think, grow or evolve as people. So the more I think about it, the more I realize that although with all the pain and suffering in our world, there’s a reason why the universe did not manifest a “perfect” place. I’m not necessarily trying to obscure how awful life can be sometimes; I’m merely focusing on the fact that it’s pretty awesome that we’re all learning.
I have to remember, though, that I am saying this from a First World position. I don’t think many homeless people happen to be sitting down with mac book pros, vaguely thinking about what to eat for lunch, on a bed in a warm house. In a strange way, what I take for granted would be their “perfect” place.
Anyway, back to the point: I accept that I will have challenges to face during my time with this blog. For those of you that may end up following me, thank you and take it easy on me. I’m trying to provide entertainment for you. Honest entertainment, not media crap.
I say fine if no one reads a words I write. This is about my own journey as a writer, and if no one cares, what can I do? I’ll write about it. For myself to read.
Well that’s pretty much it for my first day on the job. If you have absolutely anything to say about what I have just written, please do comment. The button is so conveniently placed right beneath my words. It would be a complete lie if someone didn’t have some sort of criticism. After all, I’m not living in a perfect place. 🙂
Okay that’s it, see ya,
