The Journey to Start

I’ve been trying to take steps to help me write. I’ve purchased iPhone apps, started carrying a journal around again, and even bought a bluetooth keyboard for use with my phone when I’m out and about. I’m not sure if it is helping, but I am writing more. I find that my ideas aren’t really flowing as much as I’d like them to, but at least I’m taking the time to write things down. More importantly, I’m just writing more in general. Even if it’s gibberish, I am writing something each day. I decided to begin by getting organized. That is the process I’m working on now. I bought an app that is designed to organize and categorize your thoughts. It has helped me to get all of the ideas that go together into one place. Of course, I’ve been transcribing most of it from handwritten scribblings in my journal to small, typed notes on my phone. Maybe the phone isn’t the best place to write, but it is the one thing I always have with me, so if I have it all there, then I always have access to my thoughts and ideas. It is a beginning, and since the beginning is where I am, it works. This journey to write is daunting, but it is not impossible. The stories are in there, I just have to make myself reach inside and bring them out. So, here I am, writing, ready, excited, terrified, and determined. It’s still a journey. I have no idea where it will lead me, but I can’t wait to see the path it takes to get there.
