The Journey of 1,000 Steps Just Began...

I mentioned in a past post that I'd like to write a book someday. I've kind of been saying"someday" for about 6 years now. Well, this summer, I'm going to take the first steps toward my goal.

I had lunch with a friend yesterday who's involved in publishing and I asked him if he could offer any advice on getting started. He offered up some helpful direction and, as I listened, I came to a realization: this is totally possible. I mean, Pamela Anderson has "written" 2 novels herself. And, in relation to her, I'm certain of two things about myself: 1) I'm as smart as her. And 2) I've got to work on my content. Because if I put a picture of myself on the cover, I might sell as many copies as her. But I'm not certain...

So, I offer this goal to you, the public:

By September 1st, I will write 2 sample chapters of around 3,000 to 5,000 words each. Also during that time, I will submit 2 articles to some magazines.

After September 1st, I'll evaluate and see where I'm at, an then go from there.

Here we go...
