I am reading a book on writing that we used in one of my college classes. I never finished it in college (I think we only talked about the first few chapters). Since then I have started it several times as I have tried to get back into writing. This time I am determined to go all the way to the end. Anyway, in this book (Wild Mind) the author suggest that even before you get anything published and way before you make a living at it you introduce yourself to people as a writer.
So he is my formal introduction. I am Shane and I am a writer.
I am hoping this works for other things too. Tomorrow I think I am going to be a Space Cowboy. That sounds like fun.
