Never Really Been Much of a Blogger
I've never been able to keep a journal or blog without forgetting it even exists after a few weeks. This might be the first post to something that will undoubtedly disappear from my mind shortly. But we'll see what we can do.
I don't find anything in my life particularly interesting, nor do I have a whole bunch of nifty links for the aspiring author's on this site. So, as I type this sentence, I wonder what my thinking behind starting this entry was. Guess I'm just bored and wanna hear (see?) myself talk.
Maybe you'll run across this blog and get interested and wanna be friends or critique each other's work. I could go for that, actually. Currently, I'm working on a novel that has been working itself out in my mind for nearly a year. It is a typical fantasy story with a hero, a girl, a quest and extraordinary places and creatures. I wouldn't say everything about it is so generic, though. I'm not going to bore you with it now, but it originally started out as an alternate history book, but when I realized that I'd need to gather so much historical information I was disappointed and wanted more flexibility, thus creating my own world. This might be a good thing considering that, as I've noted before, the best selling and most beloved series are often set entirely in their own world.
I'll make it a point to update this blog whenever I can and maybe use it as a chance to lay out my thoughts on writing as well as reviewing books I think you folks might find to be good reads. Since I don't know any of you and am not afraid of your opinions I'd like to tell you I just started reading Twilight today. I had been insulting it for some time and when I heard a little girl in Borders say, "Mommy! Twilight!" I was disgusted until I realized that I shouldn't judge purely off retarded clips of a movie. I'm paying the price for my morals now and don't think I can take more than a chapter a day lest I stab myself in the eye. I'll tell ya how that works out later. And if you are a Twilight fan and just read that, please go throw yourself off a bridge.
