This is truly hard to believe, that I am figuring out how to set up my very own blog. This is a woman still firmly entrenched in the last millennium. Yes, I know how to use a computer. Sort of. But consider the fact that I don't have a Blackberry or an iPod. Truth is, I don't even have a real television that gets any channels. I have an old portable television (I'm not even sure it's a color TV) with rabbit ears. When Dick Cheney changed the television broadcasting system to all digital I had to get him to send me one of those converter boxes. The only reason I have a converter box is so I can find the news in the case of nuclear annihilation. Cheery thought, eh?
So here's the deal. I'm a writer who is rather unsuccessful making a living writing. But I'm not giving up. I'm completing a non-fiction book, tentatively titled Learning to Pray, a collection of personal essays and recipes. I've had a couple of things published in Texas Monthly and I'm waiting for acceptance/rejection on others. Everyone tells me I need to start blogging. So I'm starting. I write every day. Some days it's just a grocery list, but still it's writing. But do I have the nerve to really post what I write for all the world to see? Stay tuned.
