Taking a Risk

I’ve neglected this blog for awhile. Not because I’ve wanted to. I’ve been busy with my other blog, my family and I’ve also been preoccupied with a life altering decision. After much consideration, I’ve decided to take a chance. This is REALLY big for me, because I’m not a risk taker.

Writing has been my passion since I can remember. I wrote my first story when I was 9 years old and I haven’t quit. I write poetry, childrens’ stories, and romance stories. I’ve always kept a journal and now I blog. I LOVE words. When I read I find typos and when I listen to people speak I can hear their verbal grammatical errors. I don’t say anything, but I make mental notes to myself. I talk to myself…A LOT, too. I just like to HEAR words. Call me nuts, but I do.

After 25 years as a controller in the automotive industry-YUK, I’ve decided to try my hand (no pun) at freelance writing. Yep, I’m going out on a very short ledge here. I have no formal training. No schooling. No degree. Heck, I don’t even know if I have any talent, but I’m taking the chance anyway. For the very first time in my life I’m actually going to throw caution to the wind and take a risk.

And here’s why…

I’m a writer therefore I write. The written word is etched in my heart and soul, and for me, it’s a sin to keep it silent. I’m a writer and I have to write what’s in my heart and soul. I need to fill a blank page with words like love fills an empty heart with joy. Words fill a void within my heart and if I allow that void to go empty then the world won’t hear my soul sing.

May words always flow from my heart to my fingertips.

  5. Pat: Click the Red "Hart" at the upper right hand corner of this blog to get an idea of what I'm trying to do. It's in its infancy, so take that into consideration. And yes, adios car industry! With the government's grubby hands in it, I'd rather not be involved!
