Wow. Am I really blogging?

So, there have been a few times over the years that I’ve been asked, “Have you ever thought about writing a blog?”

My response was always ‘nope’.  But, then the question I have is, why are they asking?  My first thought is usually something like, “Oh, they must like reading what I write.”  haha  Really, it could just as easily be that they are thinking, “Man, she sure does talk a lot.”

Actually, it’s probably a combination of the two. I don’t mind, though!  I do talk a lot and some people really do like to know what I have to say, which still surprises and humbles me.

I probably never would have jumped into writing this blog, but I started writing a book that, some day in the future, I would very much like to have published!  I’ve also found, after getting over the initial feelings of secrecy (mostly because I wonder if anyone will take seriously that I would even attempt such a thing), that I really love talking about the creative process I find myself going through each day.

Writing is something I have enjoyed at least since the sixth grade.  My teacher, Mrs. Carns (forgive me, though, it might be spelled with a ‘K’??), gave us a creative writing assignment every day and I looked forward to it.

Of course, I’ve never stopped enjoying the process of writing my thoughts, feelings, imaginings, musings, and so on.  That being said, I hope you will enjoy this blog I’m starting as I discuss my journey as a would-be author.
