This dream has been a long time coming. Years of contemplation, one decision, then months of hard work to build this blog from the ground up. I think every writer has a vision for how they imagine their work will turn out, but there is no guarantee; our own imaginations can surprise us and even our creation can have a mind of its own, resulting in something we never thought we were capable of.
I am a sentimentalist and hopeless romantic by nature, but I find it awkward to reveal that side of myself most of the time. However, I didn’t think it would be fair to start off this blog-baby of mine without at least a smidgen of sincerity amongst all my sarcasm and dry humor. I naturally have a desire to please my audience, but I also want to write for myself because, at the end of the day, I simply want to publish the thoughts and ideas that have been harbored in my head for over 20 years. I also know, now, with certainty, that God has given me a gift and He intends to use me for a purpose. What that will look like, I have no idea. All I know is that I need to write, edit, publish, and repeat.
So here I am at the beginning, with some trace of an idea, but ready to face plenty of trial-and-error. Lord knows what this little rhetorical adventure has in store for me.
Cheers to the Ginger Genesis.
