Are you a writer?

My name is George and I'm a writer.

Okay, alright, you can stop rolling your eyes now. I know you're probably saying, "Oh wow, how groundbreaking! Another writer starting a blog."

Here's the thing. I'm not just any writer, I'm different. My wife even thinks I'm different. Oh wait a minute, that's right, she thinks I'm difficult? I'm that too.

But anyway, that's another subject for another entry.

Back to being an unpublished writer. I plan on making it big, and climbing to the top of the list. No, I don't mean the grocery list, I mean the infamous best seller list.

I know it's a battle, of course it is. If it wasn't a battle, then everyone would be a best selling author. I know there are a lot of self proclaimed writers out there, and you may even be one. If you are, I would love to hear from you.

Stick with me and you'll see it happen right before your eyes. You'll see the chronicles of George the Writer unfold right before your very eyes, however mundane it might be.

I'm going to try and make a daily blog out of this, however short it might be on the weekend. Yes, I have a day job per say. I work Saturday, Sunday, and Monday for twelve hours each day. I'm not sure if I would go as far to say that it's a real job, but it pays some of the bills. Let's leave that subject at that. Maybe we can delve into the world of work another day.

My writing time is slim, and will be expanded soon. I get up around 4:30-5:00am to write. This block of time only gives me about an hour or so, due to my daughter geting up at 6:15 for school. I would like to get up earlier, but latley my wife and I have discovered the Hereoes Season one and two, and have been staying up past 11:00pm to catch up before season three starts.

I'm still getting up early, but not as early as I desire.

"Okay Mr. George the Writer, what exactly have you written?"

I'm currently on my second novel. My first novel, which I thought was the next great american story, turned out to have as many holes in it as a block of swiss cheese. That story, A Ripple in the Water, is sitting idle now. I'll pick it back up again some day, but not now. It was a love story, as is my second novel. My current novel, The Waking Hour, is in it's second/third re-write.

I have a few short stories I've written, and maybe I'll post them. If anyone is interested.

Well that's it for today. If I don't post on Sat, Sun, Mon, then I will make a submission on Tuesday.
