Good morning, sir.

Greetings reader!
I am sitting at my computer this morning for one reason, and one reason alone. I had this ingenious, totally original, ground breaking idea - to start a blog. (I know, I know, you wish you had thought of it first.) Not just any blog, mind you, but a blog about my journey to (hopefully) write a book.

Now that you all are captivated by my astounding intellect to think of such a thing as no one has ever dared think of before (winky emoticon) -let me just say, that you are welcome.

This is going to be a place where I will share the thoughts, feelings, and struggles, of the life of an average person who simply has the desire to one day be deemed a writer. My only hope is that you will share this journey with me and help me to become the writer I know is just itching to crawl out from under my skin.

There will be days when you will like to come and bask in the glory of my writing, and there will be days when you will despise the very keyboard I pound each word so thoughtfully out of. Let us hope, that today is the day that you are feeling generous - but even if you are not, I still hope you shall return.

I promise to not always be so overly dramatic, and cheesily sarcastic. But I do promise to always be myself and never put on a guise to mislead you into thinking I am something greater than I truly am. I am simply a girl, with an idea. An idea that I pray will, one day, be a book. This is my journey. All I ask is for your companionship along the way.

With all sincerity,

Way to go Jen! This will be a wonderful, exciting adventure that will help you grow into an AWESOME writer. I can look back and say "I knew her when..." I would love to follow you along on your journey! Peggy Estrada

Sounds good Jennie. It'll be interesting to have a friend in the same boat as myself. Good luck, and if you need encouragement or commiseration, look no further. You can do it!

To think it all started out here, and now 70,087 words later, you are past phase one and moving on to the uphill segment of your journey! I love your Monday's Best!

Totally decided to go back and read your first blog post. It's amazing how much we've learned since then, isn't it?
