This is the first blog I think I've done under my real name. Googling me doesn't turn up anything about yours truly until page six, I think, and I felt I needed to rectify that.
This blog is about me and writing. I have another blog for the sort of 'had lunch' details of my day-to-day existence, this space is more for me to talk about the process of writing, and, eventually, the product that I hope will result.
My qualifications to pontificate on such are not wildly impressive, but they're not utterly nonexistent. I am one of the first graduates of the Creative Writing program at Emory University. The leftover poems from my classes gave me enough material to make a minor name for myself on the Atlanta spoken word circuit in the mid-nineties. I have a couple of poems in actual bound books (that I didn't have to pay for) and I've done a bit of music reviewing for some local publications. So there's that.
I am currently working on taking my past two NaNoWriMo efforts and fusing them into a unified work, which I hope to revise and submit for publication. I decided instead of waiting until after the thing's published (should it happen--knock wood) I'd go ahead and blog about the process itself and see what comes of it. It could either be a lovely Cinderella story or a tragic farce. I have no way of knowing until I set things in motion. And I invite you, gentle reader, to come along with me and see where it leads.
