I am reading a lot of great stuff here. I did read some writing excerpts I wanted to write extracts like vanilla extract. Anyway, from what I get is that I need to develop a writers life. This is not just about butt glue. Putting in the writing time. This is about reading. And finding support and giving support to other writers. I am ready to come out as a writer I suppose. Rock it or own it. So, my plan is to write every morning unless have a serious appointment. I am moderately talented and moderately hard working. I can produce a fiction novel. That is what I mean by clawing my way to totally average. I am struggling for average here. I think what I am trying to say is that I am trying to take myself seriously. Although obviously I am love humor. Getting a lot of good writers vibes. I am hesitant to put too much of my stuff out there. When I run into a problem I will bring it to the group. Just for the reason that I have excellent ideas and I don't want anyone copying me. I don't mean to be off putting by saying that. I like the comments. Lots of intelligent people here.
