An Idea is Born…

I was thinking today that it has been quite awhile sence I last wrote anything. I know that I haven’t posted to this blog in some time but I also haven’t been writing period. I think that I can honestly say that I have a burning desire to write something and that it would be meaningful, but where do I start. That’s when the idea came to me. I need your help. I believe that all great projects are done in teams, so why not writing? I have an idea and you have great input and together we can create anything. Today I will start writing my next story. It may end up a short story or a full length novel, I don’t know but I know this that what we write together will be amazing. So I invite you to join me on this journey and please give your input. I want to know what you think and where you think that this project should go. Together we can write something great and tomorrow the world will read it. So lets start. Should this be a fiction or factual piece? Please leave your idea and we’ll go from there. Also if we choose an idea that wasn’t yours please don’t stop helping us, we need your input and I would personally like to invite everyone to come along with us for the long haul. Thank you all and now let’s get writing.

Been a while

Well it’s been a while since my last post. I’ve been busy with all the holiday pomp and circumstance that I’m sure you are all familiar with. But I’m back and ready to start pressing forward. I’ve been doing ok in my class work at college and looking forward to graduating this year, but I find myself constantly thinking about two other things right now. First is my writing which seems lacking at this time and secondly smithing which I’ve always been interested in. I shave with a straight razor and I came across a video on YouTube the other day that showed a man forging a straight razor. I was interested and followed a link to his blog http://www.lewisrazors.com and his work, or art I should call it, was amazing. While looking through his gallery’s I was reminded of my own desires to learn about this trade. So I think in the not to distant future I will be contacting a friend of mine who knows about smithing to ask for some counsel. But in the mean time I need to finish school and when I have the time continue working on my next book. I love writing and I know that I must not lose my desire to write. Apathy is an easy drug that only holds one down. This I know all too well, but I have learned how to throw off the chains of mediocrity and put my hands to the plow of hard work. One day at a time lived to the fullest one is capable of is all I can ask of myself. So I’m off to work hard, to finish strong, and to win.
