Into the unknown

The first post… The journey into the Unknown Self.

I don’t know what I’m doing. I’ve never had a blog before. Sure I have 97k post karma on Reddit, but that doesn’t mean I have any skill at professional writing. Everyone posts online these days. How am I to stand out against the millions of blog writers? Many who have been writing in some form for years. Who went to college for it. My Culinary Arts degree doesn’t compare. I haven’t really ever known what I’ve been doing in life. But, nobody really does. We are all born with the ability to breathe. Little by little we learn. We are guided by our parents until we become adults and have to live on our own. I’m a new writer. Everyone has to start somewhere. Here is my beginning to see if I can be good at writing. I’m 33, unemployed, unsure of what I want to do in the future for my career, and live with my mother. I didn’t want my life to be this way at 33. This is reality. To change you have to meet yourself where you are at the present moment. So, I’ll write badly until I can run with the pros. You have to crawl before your first step. Step without falling before you walk. Walk before you run. My goal is to write a minimum of 370 words once a week. I don’t have a clear idea of the focus on my content yet. Anyway, welcome!
