Yesterday is history, tomorrow is a mystery, today is a gift, that's why it's called present.
After all the encouragement and kind words from my friends here, I have been working on a story I had started some time ago. When I finish the first chapter, and put it through my editing then my sisters editing, I will be posting it. How ever the first post will not be here on Ruminations. Jena Isle has asked me to do a guest post on one of her sites, Gewgaw Writings. So I will send her the first chapter to post . I will then add chapters here as I complete them. I can't explain how good it made me feel to have someone ask me to do a guest post on their site. This is all so new to me, I feel like such the beginner, I'm experiencing emotions I'm just not familiar with.
I can tell you this, the story is based in the future, but you'll feel like you've gone back in time. I dreamed up the idea about a year ago, and started writing it down. Building a character base, and developing a story line. I never dreamed of putting it out for the public to see, for I think of myself as a reader not a writer. I always wanted to write a book, but never took it seriously. I still don't consider myself a writer, I am just an amateur, tinkering with his thoughts. If I manage to create something you all will enjoy reading, so much the better.
I will be doing some new things here each week. I'm going to engineer them to help me improve my writing, and would appreciate constructive critique at any point. If you catch me messing up, give a shout out, and let me know so I can correct my bad habits.
So much has happened to me this week that I'm still reeling from it. I have made more friends here in the blogosphere than I imagined possible. One of the reasons I think is because I am opening up a little, and letting people know who I am. I have received two more awards, one from Jena Isle of Random Thoughts, and one from Soul Merlin of From Dusk 'Till Dawn. I will be doing post for them a little later on, and sharing the link luv with more of my deserving friends. I don't want to crowd the awards together, I think it would make me look stuffy or big headed, and I'm not. But it is important to pass on the honor, so I will do my award posts, spread out over a few weeks. Thank you both, I am honored and flattered beyond imagination.
