Writing a BLOG is a new experience and one that I do not do often enough as I am not attempting to establish myself as a Blogger.

I assume that those who follow me must have some interest in things I post even though most of my postings have dealt with my Cotton ancestors. The original goal of my blog was to share the trials and frustrations I encounter attempting to write and publish. However, by sharing these frustrations entails reliving  them and why would anyone want to do that!

I have thought about setting a goal of writing at least one blog post a month. But somehow, this seems too artificial. So it looks like my blog will grow in a more spontaneous and organic way and I will post when inspired or feel that I have something I want to say. After all, I really have nothing to prove. My writing is what it is and progresses slowly and painfully. And, the only thing I know for certain is that I must stick with it if I am ever going to finish a book or two.  It is such a solitary activity that there is little to share and once I finish a book, it will stand on its own with no need for any commentary from me. For now, I must just keep plugging away in hopes of reaching that point.
