I don’t know what I’m doing, but I’m determined to start this blog. Where’s the nearest blog class? Help!

I started my novel in earnest. I will finish this novel. My protagonist is Twyla, a thirteen-year-old starting over in Louisiana in 1970. If it sounds a lot like my youth, it’s merely a coincidence. 

I’ve stumbled across a handful of dang good blogs written by dang good writers: Joanna Penn, Jeff Goins and Chuck Wendig. (The Creative Penn, Jeff Goins, Writer and terribleminds.) Each of these blogs is unique, but all of these writers share one common trait: Generosity. Their willingness to share what they’ve learned is startling. They learn by teaching, which makes sense when you think about it. but how common is it to stumble across people who invite others to succeed?

That’s it for now. I don’t wish to embarrass myself.
