Great information!

I appreciate your transparent honesty.

Writing is my passion. I barely passed English in high school. Went to college and had to take a writing class for rocks. The bug hit me while stationed overseas in the U.S. Navy.

My desire for writing started to blossom through journaling and letter writing. Went back to school in my thirties and realized I could write papers well enough to squeeze A’s out of Dr. Thomas Strouse.

Now, I am on about my third blog site. Sitting on an unpublished short novel.

I find myself where you were several years ago. I needed what you served up in this article. Very timely.

You gave me some things to work on.

I need to dial down and narrow the who. I have an idea of the what. Do it, tweak where needed, and let the results come as they may.

I love how simply this post identifies areas in which I need work.
