There’s nothing quite so invigorating and anxiety-inducing as a blank page, so I’ll just jump right in.

I’m not quite sure how this blog will evolve, but I would like it to serve as a starting place for developing my writing career. Maybe with time, patterns will emerge and I can look back and discover things about myself that had previously gone unnoticed. But it won’t be all navel-gazing – I’m also looking to expand my community of friends and acquaintances to include bloggers and blog-readers here, there and everywhere.

And with any luck, it won’t end up like any journal I’ve ever started – the first half brimming with the earth-shattering emotional outpourings of a teenaged mind and then abandoned after a few months, left to collect dust in my basement.
