Here's the Deal

Hello World... I have arrived. Well, not really, but the blog has arrived. And it's a start.

So I'm trying something new. I'm extremely bored, unhappy and ready to make some changes. I'm stuck in a dead end job, stuck in a rut, stuck in life... you get the point... basically I'm stuck.

What am I doing about it? I'm writing a book. I'm trying to do something I know I really enjoy. I can't really describe it, but I just feel good when I write. Okay, we're getting ahead of ourselves. First things first...

A little bit about me:

Well, I'm not exactly going to tell you anything really tangible about myself, not yet anyways--I'm very sorry. Before I completely lose you though, let me explain. You are going to get to know me, just not the visual details, I guess--you know... the boring stuff. So what you will be seeing is my joys, frustrations, heartaches, triumphs, basically my journey even if you're not seeing the person making it.

Why, you ask?

I am trying to write and publish my first novel, something that I have wanted to do my whole life. If it works out--that's amazing.... if it doesn't, well, the only person I would have disappointed is myself. Yes, I have an odd way of thinking, I know (hence the blog title..hehe... do you get it?)

I haven't told a single person what I'm attempting as yet (except my sister). It feels too personal, and I'm not too sure how it will go over. So for now, this will be my online journal.

To be completely honest though, I would love to be published, but right now, I'm trying to focus on finishing the thing. I've never, ever finished an entire novel before, bits and pieces here and there, tons of short stories, but not a whole book... so here's to hoping, and lots of hard work and determination. If I can finish it, that would be success in itself (well, for me anyways). But I know it's going to be a long, difficult road. Anything worthwhile always is.

Alrighty, enough for Post #1. I look forward to you guys joining me as I embark on this endeavor. It should be an exciting ride. I hope you enjoy reading :).
