Story Writing

Well, I know this is the place filled with aspiring writers.  I am of course one of you.  Yes, non-fiction calls to me just to share the material I’ve already lived, but it’s non-fiction/fantasy that I really want to write.

Today, I am trying to do it.  Officially.  I started with pictures of strangers off the internet who look like my characters and 50 different first sentences.  Still don’t have a beginning, but at least I’m really trying to do it.


The pressure to find a voice

It’s funny, even with my faceless existence on the internet–namely this blog with no name attached–I feel so much pressure to come up with something amazing and meaningful to say.  It is not enough to just express thoughts or opinions.  Whatever I “publish” must be great!! So, here I will post a picture of the cat.  Its therapeutic.  It also breaks another long silence where I think about writing and then do not.
