Hello, world!

Welcome to my blog. I hope I'll update it at least semi-regularly.

My name is Tom. I'm a writer. I don't earn a living from writing, but I don't think that's necessary to call oneself a writer. Writers write. They hone their craft. They associate with other writers and creative people. They throw up their hands, curse, and delete whole blocks of text. They edit, revise, and make honest efforts to share their writing with an audience. I do all of those things (some days, I do the cursing and deleting parts more than the others), so I say I'm a writer. If you do all of those things, you can call yourself a writer too. Just tell the doubters you have my permission. That and $4.00 will get you a latte at your favorite coffee shop.

This blog will be a place where I talk about my writing projects, the writing process, publication and publishing, post reviews, and maybe ramble a little bit about pop culture. After all, we're all pop culture junkies to some extent, aren't we?

I plan to enjoy this ride. I hope you'll enjoy it, too.


  1. Welcome to the world of blogging! It's an exciting time, and I hope you enjoy it. I started mine end of November 2010, and it's a great place to share about you - the person, and you - the writer.

    Congratulations on taking this step.
