I’ve decided to start a blog because I seem to be writing constantly. 

It started when I took my first fiction writing class.  Well that’s not true it started when I was twelve years old and I read I know why the caged bird sings by Maya Angelou.  When I finished the book I said to myself  “I can do this”.  From that moment on I knew, just knew that one day I would write a book.  Actually, five books.  I don’t know why five but that’s what I’ve always felt. 

In my fiction writing class I discovered my “voice”.  I discovered that I write best when I write what’s real to me without trying to make it literary.  My forte is just keeping it real.  That saying has become cliche’ but when it comes to my writing it’s acurate.  For years I tried to write things that would be entertaining to the reader, not trusting the reader to accept my view of the world.  So thanks Johannes Lichtmann and the spring10 class for giving me honest feedback and courage.

And so it begins…
