It seems necessary to have a "first blog post." An announcement of some sort, that I'm here and I'm going to be talking about ... something. I'm not sure what yet. I don't have a topic schedule or anything. I might, at some point. We'll see how this goes. Full disclosure: I'm not sure what I have to offer the world of blogging. I'm just one more writer who also loves music and film. I have passionate opinions about the art of story, what works and what doesn't. Those opinions might show up here.
I'm also a Christian. I want every word I write (here and elsewhere) to honor and bring glory to my Creator and my Savior.
I have noticed that a lot of writers' blogs are aimed toward fellow writers. Here a tip, there a tip on how to create a novel. My brain tends to veer in that direction, too; and of course, those blogs are needed. However, most of the future readers of my series (should God bless me with my life's goal: a publishing contract) won't be writers. And I've decided they (you?) are the people I want to talk to here. Kind of pointless to blog about how to write a book when the majority of you will never attempt such a crazy task.
So, anyway. At the risk of sounding like a 19th-century narrator ...
