When I suddenly became divorced for the second time at 46 years old, I freaked out. What am I supposed to do now? What direction do I go in? Thankfully, my faith in the Lord kept me from freaking out too much. 

I remembered that I have always wanted to write. Not for a living, just to make myself happy. I have always been writing; I’ve kept a journal for years. That’s writing, right?

I’ve had some story ideas kicking around in my head for quite some time, but getting them down on paper is harder than I thought it would be. It’s scary, but my desire to do so is stronger than my fear of failure, so I set upon a research course where I read everything I can get my hands on about writing, and how to write. 

The number one piece of advice I found is, in order to learn how to write, you must…WRITE!

Makes sense to me, so here, I write. I decided to use a blog to practice writing. Especially after I found this article by Jeff Goins titled “Why You Should Start A Blog (Even If You’re Not A Writer). In Jeff’s post he makes three important points about how you can use a blog to improve your writing: 

•Blogging teaches you discipline.
One of the harshest truths I’ve read about writing is how strict you have to be with yourself. Blogging forces you to adhere to a system and a schedule. I can be very lazy and this one scares me.

•Blogging teaches you introspection.
Hopefully, I can learn about myself as well as learning how to write.

•Blogging gives you a voice.
What is “my voice”? I want to use this blog to help me find it.

So, here I go. Even though I’m terrified that I’ll get laughed at, it’s not enough to stop me from doing it.
So, this is me blogging to learn how to write.
How did you learn to write?





No Regrets?

People say, “Live life with no regrets.”
I don’t agree. As a Christian, I know I am absolved of all sin, yet I still sin. I regret that.

It all started with what I thought might be an infection in my right tit.  Back in the late spring or early summer, I noticed a very slight drop of rust-colored discharge (I know, gag) on the tip of my nip one morning.  I was totally unconcerned and figured maybe I was recovering from a mild infection in a milk duct after having weaned my youngest son, Eli a few months prior.  At some point later in the summer, I noticed it again.  This time I decided to do what any good ol’ American would do, and I consulted the internet.  Holy shit.  Words like “malignancy” and “tumor” and “symptom of breast cancer” were flying at me off of every medical site.  Despite learning that what I was experiencing was far from normal and that I should get busy doing a breast self-exam, I still wasn’t alarmed.

I’ve gotta be…

There’s hope yet.

I’ve found my passion and it’s Twitter. I want to make my living using Twitter. I’ve never felt this way before. I usually give up after 5 minutes, but I’m so in love with Twitter that I know this is different. This is real.
