I almost forgot

There are many hats that I wear in life: mother, sister, teacher to name just a few.

I am not a writer.
I have never thought of myself as a writer.  I have made feeble attempts to become a regular writer because I know that it could make me better...but it has never stuck.

It makes sense that I have opened this blog 6 separate times today and attempted to "rip the band-aid" and just begin, but then closed it again because of a more pressing matter. There is always something that gives me the excuse to walk away and start again some other time that is more calm, appropriate, or sane.

Today is the day that I attempt to be a writer, for better and worse.

At least for the next 30 days.


  1. A first time slicer! Well, welcome. You're in good hands. This is my second year and if you keep at it, we will read it. And comment on it. And help you become the writer you are meant to be. Can't wait to see how your month shapes you! So far, I like your honesty. Been there. We all have!

  2. I can completely relate with this post. I feel the same way. I keep trying to start being a writer and it doesn't stick, except I do sometimes take the time to write. Here's to making a new habit stay around for awhile.

  3. I am glad that you are embarking on this journey - that you ripped the band-aid off. Enjoy these 30 days (and beyond).
