Inside of all of us is The Writer… I’ve been writing since I was young, but I have never truly given my Writer a home… It is my intention to finally and truly embrace my Writer, I intend to do this by Writing, Writing, Writing…
But to do this, I must first create the space for it… Where will I write… What music will I listen to… Who will I share my writing with while I develop it… Time will tell
Time has told… I Wrote that as my very First Blog Post, back on August 18th, this year.
Now as I reflect how far I’ve come, and yes I know that seems silly to say, as it was only 11 weeks ago that I started this Blog… But in truth, I have accomplished exactly what I set out to do… 1) To Create a Space for me to Write, so that I could get in the Habit of Writing, Writing, Writing… And that’s exactly what I’ve done. I’ve Started 3 Blog Series, 2 Novel’s, 1 Novela, I’ve Written 20 Poems, 5 Film Review’s, Some 30-ish Editorial’s, and Numerous Music Based Social/Experiential Posts, and started Two Other Blogs.
I’ve Written one to three Posts Daily for Eleven Weeks Straight… And I’ve learned a lot. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not Promoting Quantity over Quality by any means… I’ve just really been busy.
I’ve now found myself in an interesting Place. As I’ve shifted my Editorial’s, to a degree, over to my The Dark Globe Blog, which I’ve really enjoyed… I’ve set it up to be like a News Paper to a Degree… Something that our Society has slowly Weeded out, and shifted more towards the Internet… Which is fine. It’s not the same as Holding a News Paper in your hands, but it does give you a lot of Freedom, in regards to what Content you fill it with, as well as Who You Have Writing with you.
I’ve also Shifted my Film Review’s over there, but have also added Book and Television Reviews. Something I’m hoping my Additional Site Writer’s get involved with, in addition to me.
On my Second Site, One Knight, I’ve also achieved what I set out to do, which was create a space Specifically for me to work on my “One Knight“ Novel, a Concept that I came up with as a young boy. As well as added a Couple Author’s to the Site, to give the Site Variation. But I’ve said all of this before.
I now sit with 2 Novel’s, and one Novela in front of me, and I’m trying to determine which to focus more on… So far I’ve inched each of the three along, most recently adding “Lion’s Roar” to my Work. This was a Novel Concept that I came up with while determining whether or not to Join the NaNoWriMo this year… In the end, I determined that I didn’t want to tie myself down to one project alone quite yet, even for a month… Perhaps next year. So, I in turn started to Write it here, in the Written Word.
Also, I’ve been doing some Research on Self Publishing, as I’m considering Publishing 14 of my 20 Poems in a Short Book. I’ve never Published anything before, so I’m quite excited about it. I’m currently gathering information about Printer’s, as well as determining if I want to Hire an Artist to Sketch a Cover, or go with something even simpler.
Other than that, I contacted a hand full of Writer’s, and one Photographer about Contributing as Author’s on The Dark Globe Blog, and several were interested. But I need more. So far I have 3 other Writer’s, and one Photographer interested.
I have several Topic’s/Page’s on this Site, some of which I will not be Writing under. Such as Technology. Though I love Technology, Embrace it, and Utilized it everyday… I am not remotely an Expert in regards to it. So I’m going to be looking for someone to Write Some Technology Piece’s, some Music Piece’s, some Short Stories (Either New, or Previously Posted elsewhere, either way), some Health or Diet Piece’s, as well as any other thing they’d like to Talk/Write about. I will find a spot for anything that is Written, or make a New Spot.
Anyway, like I say, I am at a bit of a Crossroads with Writing at the moment, and am looking to stretch and bend myself all the more as I Explore the Deeper Zone’s within.
I look forward to all of you coming along for the Ride, and perhaps even working with some of you on The Dark Globe.
Thanks for Listening. And thanks for Joining me up to this point.
