Day One – 4/04/2017.
And so we begin, with a dip of the quill to write about what brings delight…hmmm, delight. De-Light is to “please someone greatly, charm, enchant, captivate, or thrill” to name a few. Writing can be all of those things if you find the right words to describe someone’s charm, enchant your readers with captivating prose and throw in an unexpected thrill along the way; but in the end, you have no idea what will happen when you put quill to parchment, pen to paper, or fingers to keys. If I were to write about what I liked to read, you would see gruesome crime scenes, DNA theories, autopsy results (with pictures – Ooh, so interesting), and psychotic criminals who try to weave their way around being caught with their intellectual mind games. I LOVE a good who-dun-it novel. On the other hand, I also like to read and write about true stories having to do with paying it forward with random acts of kindness, people helping people, and also Christian, faith-based stories about people who have overcome great obstacles in their lives and believe in the power of prayer. I have a mixed bag of story line mumbo-jumbo in my brain and daily writing will depend on my mood, how much coffee I have had, or whether the sun is out (the sun is definitely a big factor). It took me so long to pick up the pen and write and save things I wrote that now I fear I won’t have enough time to write everything I want to write. Why did I wait so long? Life, I suppose, got in the way. But it’s that life that got in the way that is the plot to my story, the guts of my characters, and the reason for my writing. Haven’t you ever wondered what it was you were meant to do with your life? I’m forever married, I have 3 grown kids, 5 grandchildren and a dog. Though I still have to work a couple more years, writing is my passion now…Writing stories to enchant, captivate or thrill anyone who takes the time to read them. Let’s open this next chapter together.
