“Those who dream by day are cognizant of many things which escape those who dream only by night.”
-Edgar Allen Poe, Eleonora
It’s a dream that brought me here, really.
My profile and (especially) my about page go into detail, but the most important thing to know is that I’m trying to follow my dream, and this is part of it. I’ve started taking steps.
July 25, 2013, I started reaching out, to AuthorHouse and Writer’s Digest. Small steps, to be sure, and they impacted no one but myself. But they changed my life, regardless. Yesterday, I submitted a short story to a Writer’s Digest contest. Today, I posted my first responses to Writer’s Digest’s creative writing prompts. And then I started a blog. Who knows where these little steps might lead?
So I’m going to share my ideas and some of my writing, and I’m going to explore. This is as much a journal of my progression along this road as my hope that I can find myself community and comradery, out there somewhere.
Because if I’m going to have an adventure, I may as well keep a travel log.
