As with any blog, I assume an introduction is in order.
In the midst of all this busyness, though, there’s a dream I’ve been waiting to chase. I want to write a book! There… I said it out loud. It’s scary to consider chasing this dream, and my internal doubter suggests giving up all together. But, it’s a new year, heck, a new decade, and there’s no better time than the present.
So, this is my journey.
I don’t write for fame or money. Instead, I write because the creative process of putting words on a page provides a sense of purpose I feel in very few other areas of life. I’m not convinced my writing is stellar, but the chance to share it with a larger community is a dream I don’t want to ignore.
On another note, I’m a huge Green Bay Packer fan. I love spending time with family and friends. My sweet dachshund pup gives me a reason to laugh each day, and I couldn’t imagine life without this quirky little guy.
I’m convinced there are few things far better than getting lost in thrilling movie or fascinating book. My favorite book is The Count of Monte Cristo, and my favorite movie is Gladiator. Please understand I have MANY favorites, but these are the two that have best withstood the test of time.
If you’re willing, follow me along in this journey! If not, I promise I’m not offended. I only ask that you take a brief moment of introspection and consider what worthy pursuit you might embrace this new year.
