Yes it's true. You are witnessing the birth of yet another writer/blogger. I guess it's not really the virgin birth as my teaching blog has been up for a few years.
But this blog, this blog is about my secret desire. The secret desire I decided to make public a few years ago. I want to be a published children's author. And no, I don't want to self-publish. I want to hone my craft, learn, dig deep, find the stories that will delight and inspire and do it in such a way that "those in the biz" will sit up and take notice. Pompous? Maybe a little. Do-able? Maybe not. But maybe. And the maybe is what I hold on to.
So...blog goals....what will this blog be? I can answer the first. My goal for 2011 is to write at a minimum, once a week, about the process of my writing, the things that inspire, or about the country life that surrounds me. Who is this blog for? Primarily for myself, as a place to stretch my fingers and hone my voice. Will I make errors, probably, there will be no beta readers for the blog. This will be raw J.Ro. But hopefully, out there somewhere, in blog world, what I write will strike a chord and resonate with another writer.
Ready...set....go...let the blog begin! Wahoo!
