What I didn’t say about me

In my About Me page, you learned who I expected might be interested in reading my blog.

What I didn’t say, was that the reason I considered blogging in the first place was because I wanted to become a better writer.  English was always my most difficult subject. Having placed out of English for college, I only needed one technical writing class and one literature elective, of which I chose Shakespeare, to graduate. Perhaps this was why I chose to major in a science. Despite my incomprehension of dangling participles, and imperfect tenses etc., I still have always had a desire to write. Since childhood, I’ve dreamed of the books I would author, the screenplays for television sit-coms, and the “made for TV’, Hallmark movie presentations for which I would be credited.

Admittedly, I’ve always been a dreamer. I was once sent home from 2nd grade because I had put my head down on my desk after having finished a test. I just wanted to close my eyes so that I could dream privately without being disturbed. The teacher assumed I wasn’t feeling well and so instructed my parents to take me home. I didn’t mind. I got to spend the rest of the day in my pajamas, watching television.

If I had a dollar for all the hours I’ve spent dreaming in the shower, or in the car, I would be a wealthy woman. Perhaps blogging will be my answer to getting those scenarios out of my head and on paper. Surely all that processing is good for something?

  1. Now you’re being followed by a 64 year old with a PhD in English who thinks she is still middle-aged and not “senior.” Ha! I think that hill you talk about going over is still in the distance. I was 48 when I got my degree—older than you are now. My mother went to college in her 50s and my father-in-law took college courses in his 90s.

    I’m not a creative writer, but you still have plenty of time to be one, and blogs are a good place to start.
