Hello I am Sam. I just spent a good hour agonizing over the wording of my Bio on my profile so please feel free to check that out. The short version is I am a middle aged father of three girls and somewhat of a misfit. I have always loved writing and made a decent living off of my technical writing abilities among other things. I am now in a position where I can afford to indulge in things that I enjoy - like writing. To this end I have start up a Blog. I would say that my ultimate goal / dream would be to reach some level of recognition as a writer. That being said I'm in no hurry and if life has taught me anything it is that getting there is half the fun. So I come with an open mind and very little else. I hope to engage in dialoge and connect with folks who have the same aspirations as I and hopefully we can make each other a little better in the process. Please bear with me a I fumble and crash around this site and get the hang of things. With Respect Sam Edge.
