I attended a scriptwriting workshop a few years ago where someone asked me what I had written? It then occurred to me that despite calling myself a "writer", I had not really written anything - except for a sprinkling of poetry and some amateurish scribbles during my teenage years. The bulk of what I had written was work - news articles and such.
When one is a writer, one should write, at least a little, news reporting is hardly writing, plus it never gave me the writer satisfaction I craved. Hence this blog.....it serves as my outlet to gripe about the things I dislike, wax lyrical about my passions, express my opinions, and to twitter away about whatever catches my fancy.
