What this blog is

I started this blog so I can learn how to write well. Everyone can write, and I’d like to think I’m pretty good at bullshitting my way through papers so I can get my bullshit marks, but this is different. I want to really learn how to craft a story.

I’ve tried reading about how to be a better writer, and much to my chagrin, there’s no straightforward set of rules that will immediately make one better at the craft. The advice in every book or website or article is the same; sit down and write.

I’m assuming nobody in the world will read this, because I’m not writing it for anyone other than myself. If for some reason my writing interests you, or you’d like to tag along on this journey, by all means, go ahead. I’ll be writing every single day, and hopefully improving my skills along the way.

This introduction is very short, but I don’t really have much to say, other than the fact that I’m going to try to write 200 words a day, and go from there.
