I’m actually surprised how many people ask me if I want to be a writer. I don’t know what about me screams “writer”. I’m a much better talker than writer. I would actually have to enjoy writing, which I don’t. I think in the back of my mind, I see my English teacher from high school frowning at me. She must be hugely disappointed that I frequently write run-on sentences, use “be” verbs, and write in passive voice.
So, when my wonderful website developer encouraged me to start a blog, I think my exact response was, “Ughhhh, really??” If he asked me to talk about anything, then, yeah, no problem, but writing??? Ugggghhhhhhh!
Ok, so let’s set expectations.
- I will probably have run-on sentences. Sorry, Mrs. Hooks.
- I will try to blog at least once a week. Try being the operative word.
- I don’t know how long they will be. There. That takes off some of the pressure.
Ha! So we’ll see how this goes. Who knows? After writing my blogs, I may never again be asked if I want to be a writer. #win LOL
