The idea of a "first post" is daunting.

Much of the writing I've done is for myself. No one else reads it, and I like it that way. But, at that point, I can't really call myself a writer, can I? 

Or could I? Does a writer have to be published, public, seein order to be? 

I haven't blogged in a long time. I haven't written, really, in a long time. There are sudden bursts of it that seem to flood out of my system, but then life just gets too busy.

I never thought I would be too busy to write.

The stories are still there--in my head, just waiting--but every day I seem to feel more aware that they're just, well... useless in there. So this is my promise to myself: this year I will write.
