Many years ago, I used to dabble in writing. Some where along the way, I put away my pencil and paper, and decided to ‘grow up’. Went and got an education in a useful skill, and spent the next 20 years in the IT world. I always wanted to go back to writing, however with kids, marriage, work and all the half a million things that you need to do to make it through the day, I never seemed to get around to it.
Then I read about Kindle Singles program. I though hey, no I have no excuse. A book was always too daunting for me. But a smaller length, maybe I could do that.
So I dusted off a tale I’ve had sitting around for the better part of a year, a whole dozen paragraphs so far. I’d work on it here and there over the last few months, but I really had no drive to get anywhere.
Last night, I wrote 1500 words. I know that’s hardly note-worthy for the pros. But for me, it was amazing.
So then I decided that I needed a blog to keep myself on course.
Here’s to the next 1500 words. Off I go, wish me luck!
