I watched the movie “Julie and Julia” this evening. It was an unexpected surprise!! I thought it was going to be a movie about cooking, but it was so much more. The film not only encouraged me as a writer but it also helped to ease my fear of blogging. OK, maybe fear isn’t strong enough—terror would be closer to the truth.
So, why blog?…Why did Captain Robert Scott document his expedition to the Antarctic? Captain Scott’s diary was not only a record of the most important excursion in the history of British exploration, but his words became an inspiration for those who would follow in his footsteps. I know, I am not Captain Scott and this is not an expedition to the South Pole. However, I thought it might be helpful to share my experiences as I make my way into unchartered territory, my final destination, to become a published writer. And if this blog doesn’t serve to inspire than it will simply be a record of the most important excursion in this author’s life.
May your day be filled with words that inspire you.
