For years I’ve dreamed of writing a book. But so far it has only been a dream. I’ve changed my mind frequently about what genre to write; I have story ideas forming in my mind but without writing them down they are soon lost; I have spent more time reading than writing; I have had one excuse after another for not finding time to write. All in all, I start to doubt my abilities to write as well as my story ideas.
But now I am making a New Year’s resolution to start putting ideas down and just write. With my busy schedule, I am unable to attend Writer’s Forums/Clubs at libraries, etc. But I hope that by starting this blog, I may invite other writers and readers to give some constructive criticism and feedback.
I enjoy reading most fiction but my favorite is the mystery novel. Although I have a select group of favorite authors, I cannot hope or even wish to emulate any of their styles of writing. My goal at the moment is to write a book and hopefully the style will develop. I have chosen to start with a mystery. It may not be the easiest to write but is probably my best option.
Well, here’s to the New Year!
