This is something I said I wouldn't do. Blog. Even the word sounds unpleasant. It sounds like the name of some goopy creature Conan the Barbarian had to kill.
But why would an aspiring writer be so averse to a platform where he gets to publish his rantings and ravings every month? Good question. I guess it is my natural tendency not to self promote, not to draw too much attention to myself despite what you may see when I have a karaoke mic thrust in my face.
However, it is becoming increasingly clear to me, as the rejections of agents pile up and the desire for others to read my stories grows with it, that I need to do a little self promotion.
So this is it, my first post. Not going to set the world on fire, and quite possibly may go unread for all of eternity. But I'm fine with that, after all, a thousand mile journey starts with a single step.
