I have not been much of a blogger, and hope this creative experience does not teach me a nasty lesson. I also feel inadequate when it comes to offering writing advice to others, which presumably is the topic at hand. I have enough trouble containing my own stories and chapters to conventional writing covenants.
But I do like to write. What you’ll read from me will be snippets from some of my prior and on-going stories, some of my poems, and original non-fiction posts about my experiences here at the homestead. Many of these experiences have been amusing, some were heartbreaking, and I will spare you the miserable or dull.
Will I write the perfect short story or novel? I hope not. Perfection is a strong desire in many but not in me. I think in fact perfection and creativity march down two different paths. I’d rather take a risk now and then with my writing, offending or disappointing some along the way I know, but ultimately driving my writing to a higher plane. And enjoying greater satisfaction in the end.
