I kind of disappeared there for about a month or so, sometimes things just get a little out of hand.
I don’t have any idea what I am doing most of the time and I will be the first one to admit that little fact. Generally, I just act like I know what I am doing, you know, faking my way along until either I finally figure out what ever it is that I am supposed to know or getting fired, or something along those lines. This has worked fairly well for me over the years especially since I washed out of college my senior year. Really it was much more like crashing and burning out of college in a spectacular explosion of destroyed dreams and lost hope. It would later turn out that there was a reason for this occurence, in this case I was disturbed. They call it lots of things like schizophrenic, paranoid schizophrenic, schizoaffective, manic, Psychotic and that was an adjustment, to put it mildly. As a child I loved to read and always thought if I could find the time that I would like to take a stab at it, forgive the unfortunate word choice. But writing was easier said than done and english was never a strong talent of mine, as I had time and hated television it was one of the things I filled my evenings with. Over all I’d have to say that it was one of the least expensive hobbies, there for affordable on the bit I get from social security.
So that’s what I’ve been trying to learn how to do over the last twenty or so odd years. I’m beginning to think I might have gotten a handle on it. First with pen and paper, then typewriter and finally just over a year ago, maybe more like a year and a half, finally a computer. This brings me back to the earlier point that I really don’t know what the hell I’m doing most of the time. So I just try to fake my way through it and I have to say its been slow. Still with the advent of this wide electronic world and the ease for a lone author to self publish I have decided to challenge myself by attempting to complete not one but two books by the next vernal equinox. Iba’s diary will be a place that I can occasionally let you know how its going.
After all if you know too then I have all the more impetus to see this thing through.
