Hello and welcome.
Isn't the web an awesome place? We've come a long way from smoke signals and scrawling on cave walls. As those devices were used to communicate information so also is the web. Today, I am able, not only to write, but to tell you why I write. Unlike James Patterson or Stephen King, for example, who are able to write novels as easily as walking, I kind of stumble when I write (and walk). It is hard work for me but like exercise, once you have written you're glad you did. And that certainly applies to me. You set a goal of 4 pages a day and sometimes the goal is achieved but more than likely distractions enter. Looking at that squirrel scampering across the lawn for something to eat. Listening to the phone ringing. Thinking about what to have for lunch. Oh well, I didn't achieve my goal today but I'll do better tomorrow. I have this story in my head and I will get it written down. And I will, eventually.
So once again welcome!
