Seems that all around me are stimulants to writing – from magazine articles, announcements for competitions, college requests for opinions, to journal options. I seem to be surrounded with suggestions. I do not believe I am a “writer”. At least, my attempts at novel or short story writings have not produced anything resembling success. But, I have also read that writing is a lot of work and I am treating as fun, entertaining, a release. Maybe I should give myself a gentle prod into writing for real! So let’s start with my blog. Can I write something of interest every day for the rest of the week? Will it spur me into making the effort for real? Hmmm, off I go. Into the world of journalling.
