Showing Up

My old writing mentor, Donald Murray, loved the stately Latin phrase: Nulla dies sine linea. Not a day without a line. A lot of writing, he said, was just showing up at the page every day. And that's what I am going to try to do.

I write for a living. I write for fun. I write because I am driven to write. However, I have never been disciplined about it. I am 59 this year, and perhaps it's time to start. I began my last book, The Fool's Journey, more than 15 years ago. I can't fart around like that anymore.

Hence this blog. I will try to write here every day. You can try to keep me honest. I hope you will.
