First Post

What do I want to accomplish with this blog? Still not sure. But mainly, I think I just want some kind of platform to organize my thoughts and ideas. I'm still toying with the idea of writing a book, so maybe this will help. Actually, "toying with" is not really accurate. I really want to get something published. The other day, I started working out some characters that I might be able to turn into a novel. Maybe I can use this to further develop them. Also, I have some ideas for a book of essays I'd like to get published. And then, there's all the sonnets and the other poems I wrote years ago. Some of these were actually published. I plan on digging those up, cleaning them off, and sticking them in here too.

This sounds fun. Maybe I can actually keep this going, and end up producing something tangible. Who knows? Yeah, I know. I'm 44 years old, a little late to be starting a writing career. But if I don't try now, it'll definitely never happen. Here's wishing myself luck.


  1. It's never too late! We only become wiser as we age. I too hope to become a writer some day, though I've always imagined it to be something I will leave to my later years.

    Good luck with your writing pursuits.

  2. Wow! Thanks so much for commenting. I didn't expect anyone would read that. And you are right. With more life experience under my belt, I finally feel that I might actually have something to write about.

  3. Likewise Michael, thanks for reading my blog/post.

  4. I was just getting ready to say what Libertine has already said, that it's "never too late".

    As Henry Ford once said, "If you think you can do a thing or think you can't do a thing, you're right."

  5. Thanks Sophia. I had never heard that quote before. Quite true.
