Mission Statement, of sorts.

Welcome to Here I Go, the blog where I will catalog the beginnings of my career as a writer.

So let’s talk a bit about what this will be, and what it won’t be.

I’ll be randomly musing on advice I’ve gathered about how to write, I’ll talk about the nervous apprehension and stress involved with being beta-read, submitting, and getting rejections.  Hopefully, I’ll be sharing the elation of getting published.

I’ll talk about my home life tangentially.  I won’t go into details or specifics about my wife and kids (introductions – say ‘hi’ to my wife Di, and my kids, kidlet1 and kidlet2), but I will chat about managing the house and switching from a dual income to a single income household while living in the #1 most expensive county in America, according to a recent web article I read.

I’ll try to keep it from being too mundane or boring, and I promise no photos of my random meals.  Although I will state here and now that I make exceptions for my pies.  I will definitely be posting photos of my pies.  I make them often, I eat them quickly, and I am rather passionate about them.  Not tarts, not crumbs, not glazes, not flans.  Pies.  Lots and lots of pies.

mmm….  pie.

Here I go,
