Hi there, I'm the new guy. Well for this minute anyway. I'm an amateur writer, and friends tell me that I have a talent for storytelling. But you know friends; they're very kind in their criticism. I have always wanted to write more seriously but I just don't have the confidence in myself to take myself seriously as a writer. I started my own writers blog over a year ago, but stopped soon after when the first self doubt took hold that my stuff wasn't that good. I find it a shame because I enjoyed it a lot, even though I never had anymore than a few readers. My guess is there is a lot of talented writers here. People who know how to write. What I'd like to know from someone, is if I can actually write... or not. I want an honest opinion. This isn't a cheap plea to get readers to my blog. Honestly I don't care if my blog is never seen by the masses, I'm not looking for more hits. I just want someone to tell me what they think. My writing can be found in the url in my profile. My sincere thanks and gratitude to anyone that reads anything of it and says something honest. Andy.
