It is a strange thing to dream of being a published writer and actually doing it. Crossing that line can be unnerving. Suddenly, your words are no longer your own, they are open to scrutiny by loved ones and strangers alike. And you wonder if you can handle it if no one likes your words, or worse deems them only adequate, not the gripping content you thought you wrote. Well, today I take that chance as I write my first blog. Please be kind and wish me luck.
