Pointless Reverie

The best way to be a better writer is to write! So what if it seems pointless?

A first time for everything...

Whenever I've been asked to list my hobbies, hobbies, I always have chosen to include writing. It seems to go perfectly with my most frequent activity, reading. The two are a pair, like peanut butter and jelly, milk and cookies, or peas and carrots. Reading and writing.

And yet, I really have not done much writing in quite a long time.  In my younger years, as an elementary student, I was quite the prolific writer, although most of my stories seemed to revolve around my dog and the exciting life I imagined her to enjoy while the human beings in our family were away from home. As I grew older, however, my time was taken up by school assignments requiring a focus on facts, not fiction. I used to joke with friends that the papers we had to write were designed to suck away all creativity, leaving us unable to write for enjoyment.

So here I am today, an unpracticed writer. Oh, tell me to give you a thesis statement and five pages on history, theology, literature, etc., and I could surely fulfill the requirement. But I have my own stories to share and opinions to give, and I can't quite seem to be able to get them from my mind onto the paper. Or screen, as it is in our technological age. Thus, I am following the wise advice given to me by my writer friends, and blogging to practice writing.

This blog will probably be quite random, varying from attempts at fiction to rants and raves on current events. Welcome to whoever is out there reading!
