As a writer it’s always good to try new things.
I started reading the Bill Hodges books by Stephen King recently, though I did them a bit backwards. I read the Outsider first, which isn’t a Hodges book but it was a lot of fun.
This summer my goal is to write stories in genres I wouldn’t normally write.
I’m not sure where I’ll go with these or what they’ll be about, but I need to write things I wouldn’t normally. It’s the only way I can think of to get better at this thing called writing.
I’m writing this as I listen to country music, bartending another event and like every wedding, things don’t go perfect, though this one has gone pretty close to that.
I see a lot of trying new things, people speaking that wouldn’t, people dancing who would never get on the dance floor, and the bride and groom doing something, maybe they never thought they would.
Life is about trying new things, and so is writing.
Get to it my friends and I’ll talk to you Wednesday.
