Thinking aloud

September 14, 2008  Author: Anthony Pacheco Category: Not Exactly Random, The Craft   2 Comments

If you have not guessed by now, dearest 7.3 readers, this blog is thinking aloud about my writing.

As a writer, I am isolated. This is the means electronic I use to talk to other writers and likeminded people. Selfish, I know, but very useful. The great thing about a blog is that it is both insular and welcoming at the same time. You can drop in, read, read and chat or simply skim. If it interests you, you can come back. If it does not there is just so much more out there!

So Dearest 7.3, I was asked why I was blogging and not writing. The answer, of course, is I am doing both. This is a creative outlet, a record of my thought process and internal protocols, and as above, a reach-out to my writing friends: people who think somewhat like me, either writers or readers.  I average 3000 words per day. At some point, I have to stop and think, reflect, and observe others in their sandboxes!

Over the last 76 posts, I have avoided political rants and social observations. I shall endeavor to continue this fine tradition, even in the middle of an election year. Consider it your refuge, unless, of course, you click on my Blogroll. There, I let everyone else rally for me, and they do a far far better job then I.

On to whimsical observations! And writing! Scotch! Scotch and writing!

    Thanks Windy!

    As I alluded to in this post, I may be able to write a complete first draft in three months, but that does not mean you would want to read it!
