Writing

I have had a story idea running around in my head for a few months now. It's been keeping me up nights though the subject materiel is...sensitive perhaps. It has both intrigued and bothered me. I've been uncertain as to whether or not to try and write it or even if it should be written at all. 

After talking it over in cyberspace with someone who's morals, integrity, wisdom and knowledge I trust (and who shall remain nameless unless he decides otherwise) I am going to make the attempt. I remain uncertain of my ability to bring the gravity and talent the story requires but I'm now determined to give it my best and at least try.

I'll be posting pretty light here while I at least get the outline and basic story written. I apologize for that and beg your understanding. Sunday Kipling at the least will continue as always. Maybe Angus can fill in for me on occasion. He's usually good for a chuckle or two.

If the writing goes well I may post a snippet or two here. If it doesn't I'll delete this post and swear I never even heard of such a thing :)

Thank you all my friends. I'll see you soon.

Start pounding those keys! There's a few bloggers I read on a regular basis who are going to try their hand at writing novels, myself included. I say go for it, and to those who don't like what you write...well...they're more than welcome to not buy the book!
