What have I done?!

This is one of those insane acts that you question only after the fact.  'What have I done?'
My initial answer to myself was - I thought it was about time that I started blogging. 
That is the question I'm suddenly asking myself.  How about - it seemed a good idea at the time. 
No, what really made me jump in with both feet, damn the torpedoes, was the amount of time I was spending on Facebook.
So, began the idea.  I'm starting the blog at a strange time to most of you - but for me it's a pivotal time - you see, my birthday is in a few days and I want to show myself - where I am.  Yes, I know geographically where I am, what I mean is where I am in my writing career.
I need to write.  I love to write.  I am a writer.
I may be a light blogger but I hope to use this as a diary for the coming year and see where I am at the end. 
My plan is to have an agent and if the gods are good to me - an editor by the end of this year.  I will use this forum to bare all - metaphorically speaking - you really don't want to see me naked.  (I'm blind!) 
The ups and downs and what I'm doing to achieve this dream / goal.  The operative word is DOING.  Bum to seat, pen to paper, fingers to keyboard.
There I've said it.  It's in the public domain.  Now to go forth and work.

Welcome to my nightmare......
