The real reason that I created this blog is to practice my writing skills. I am not a terrific writer and I want to hone what little skills that I do have because I want to write a book. I don’t know if those of you who blog do it for the same reason. I am guessing that not everyone uses a blog as a practice area for writing. I am hoping that if I commit to coming up with something to write about, that perhaps it will help me get a flow going. I did not go to school for writing so I have not learned the skills necessary to write anything interesting that anyone would love to read. I want to learn to make the words flow like they do in the books that I enjoy. The book will be years in the writing and I have started it. I am hoping to be able to share my stories and if ONE person reads them, I will feel that I will have been successful in this lifetime endeavor.
