story a week: an introduction

I, like thousands upon thousands of people, am a writer. I'm not an aspiring writer, like some might say, I'm a writer. I write. That doesn't mean I have it down perfectly or don't have anything to learn, in fact I have much to learn. That's why I'm here.

This is my latest writing project. I have decided to dedicate myself to keeping and maintaining a blog about writing. The real dedication, however, comes from dedicating myself to a writing a new short story every week. Sometimes I might post something old, sometimes a chapter from the numerous novels I'm writing, sometimes maybe I'll have a friend contribute, or maybe I'll even post an essay from a class. Either way, something new will be posted at least every week.

I was told by a fellow writer that talent has little bearing in contrast with dedication. While talent can make being great easier, it all goes to waste should the person lose sight of their goals. That's what this is. I want to put in as many dedicated hours as possible to writing and having a blog is a good start, right?

I'm also going to post any good writing links I happen to come across. For now, this will count as this week's story. I haven't decided on what day I'm going to post a story yet, but rest assured, it's coming.

I'm WA Julian and I'm a writer.

  1. Takes me back to 2006 when I did a similar thing. It was interesting to say the least. Good luck with it. I'll have to check back!
