My life and the things that happen in it are probably dull as glue to most people outside of my family. There is however a reason I keep this blog public. I am terribly shy most of the time. If I don’t have the courage to write down (at least some) details of my relatively boring day-to-day existence how will I ever gather up the courage to send a completed manuscript to a complete stranger? If I cannot take the opposing views of others in stride on my personal blog, how well will I deal with the rejection slips that I know the mail carrier will bring eventually? I consider this blog a test run, an exercise from which I hope to develop a thicker skin when it comes to criticism. So far it seems to be working

  1. You boring? Since when? You write well and have much to give to others with your writing. Please keep it up.

  2. ^ I agree with that comment above. I don’t think your posts are boring at all. And to be honest, I write my blog for the same reason – to practice receiving criticism/comments.
