I find it ironic, and if I may be a bit too dramatic, as well, I find it somewhat poignant, that I cannot think of some catchy description to for my introduction, which would justify to me that I can be, and perhaps even should be a writer. I mean after all, I am here because I wish to be considered a writer or at least at this point a benign settlement would be to at least "feel" like a writer. Alas, here I sit at my not so trendy, and nearly ancient computer; at 4:30 am feeling outdated, out numbered, and out witted by own meandering middle aged brain, which absolutely refuses to allow me to move forward on my quintessential, story. However, as a distraction, I sought guidance from the ominous oracle Google, and discover that, although I find no specific address to my personal quandary, there are conservatively 1,000,000,000 prospective places* which the great oracle suggests I might find more information as to my sojourn to be a writer, or as mentioned, a settlement of at least feeling like a writer. As to my personal salutations, my name is Rex**. I live in the recent tumultuous weather stricken state of Missouri. I am a husband, a father of two step children, and one son, and to add to the excitement, I will soon be the father of a baby girl. Her name will be Teagan, which means "little poet" in some ancient Irish language, which really has no meaning to anyone but her mother and I. I assure you, I will read the rules, and do my utmost best to learn the procedures for posting, and provided I have the necessary allotted time, and earn the trust of your members, I may even commit to learning the secret handshake. Until then, I will read whatever strikes my fancy and hope to learn the secrets to becoming a writer. Peace Rex NOTE * I say 1,000,000,000 when in fact I do not have the actual number to cite. However, I felt that approximating 1 billion, would seem more legitimate. As well, the original intent of providing a anecdote citing the numerical representation of a googolplexian although a more appropriate approximation, would have violated the forum's posting rules. NOTE** The author does not proclaim to be original in significant means, thus the choice of screen name reflects that lack of originality. No fancy handle, however efficiently is the author's real name, and as well only has three letters.
