Why is it important that I blog?
Because over the past two years I have felt my writing skills slip. I have noticed in my recent attempts to post longer, more coherent posts that my ability to put together a good, cohesive flow of language has fallen away, and that scares me more than a little, so I am going to try and make an effort to post something every day. Large or small, fiction or fact, I think it is important to get some thoughts down. I don't want to lose the writing skills I so carefully honed over the first 22 years of my life.
It doesn't have to be long, though I am hoping that over time it will be easier to write longer posts that make sense. We shall see, though.
