What is this all about, anyway?

Well, I can’t say that I really know.  I’ve never had a blog before, and I must say, it’s quite a daunting process to begin.  I can barely figure out how to work this thing, and I haven’t come up with a decent title for it, despite my husband’s well-meaning suggestions last night.  I know what I want to do with my blog, but I’m not sure where to begin.  I envision my blog being a safe place for me to share my creative writing attempts, thoughts about the world and life, and book reviews, while along the way receiving feedback and discovering more about who I am and who I’m meant to be.  I think I’m a writer but I’m not sure what sort of writing I’m good at or interested in.  I don’t have any education relevant to writing besides the basic (and I mean basic) primary education we’re all entitled to here in Canada.  I must confess that I am insecure about my abilities and have been searching for an outlet for my ideas.  Really, all I have are my passionate interest in books of many stripes, my insatiable need to write, and hope for an interesting future as an author.  This is my encouragement and prod from the inimitable Dorothy Sayers when I feel incapable of writing anything worth reading:

In the meanwhile she had got her mood on to paper – and this is the release that all writers, even the feeblest, seek for as men seek for love; and, having found it, they doze off happily into dreams and trouble their hearts no further.

– Dorothy L. Sayers, Gaudy Night
