The passage of time goes by quickly and we lose where we want to be and where we are going. Blogging was a project I planned to start back in November 2018, yet here we are in March 2019 and I have accomplished very little. One of the things you need as a writer is discipline. Discipline to sit down and write. This is just one of many obstacles I intend to overcome. Another obstacle I found challenging, is coming up with something to write about without boring you all. What can I say which is interesting for my readers, and this is something I gave plenty of thought to. Well, after a long search of my brain and thinking what can I write about which you’ll find interesting, I decided my blogs will be a mixture of a little bit about me, about the myths and places I plan to link to my short stories and a collection of myths and biographies of people which I hope will be of interest to you.

I am also starting on my travel blogs and a couple of these will be posted over the following month. Timetable and commitment are now created and there is no excuse for me not to keep to them. I’ll also be catching up on my short stories. More information coming soon

When I embarked on my life as a writer, I never expected it to take the route it has. I’ve always wanted to write. From the first story I wrote as a child, I’ve never let go of the dream, but I’ve done little about it. I’ve started stories and I’ve abandoned stories. I believe this comes down to faith in my ability to express what I want to say. To bring a story to life with vibrancy and life. Now, as I sit here in my study staring into the vast barrenness of the night. The only light the growing brilliance of the moon’s evening glow. I see a glimpse of what I am capable of.

I believe when you’re ready to write, it happens. Not as in fate or destiny, but as in the confidence to write what is inside you. As a private person I know this will be a hard journey for me, as  you are writing what you believe in, revealing who you are inside to others. Your dark side and the vulnerability within you. Yes, I’ve a tough few years ahead of me, but I believe I can do this.
