Why Blood & Ink you ask? The answer is quite easy actually: Like all passions, you are bound to shed blood in the process — as a writer, either from paper cuts (oh, the numerous paper cuts) or by pulling out one’s hair. While writing can be a painful, for many it is life, a passion that needs fulfilled. Most writer’s never hit that big payday, but yet they continue scribbling or banging on the key board, because they have to — something deep inside their being compels them to.
I’m no different in this aspect. I write because I need to. There are so many stories, so many characters, just waiting to be put to paper. Like many writer’s, I hope to one day hit pay-dirt, but that is not my sole reason to write: No, the main pull is that invisible drive within. So far, I have been fortunate to land a job where I write for a living as a frazzled staff writer, conquering deadlines and then being strung out by new ones that crop up at the most inopportune moments.
This blog will share my experiences, in addition to sharing articles that I hope other writer’s will be able to use. So pull up a seat and your favorite tea or coffee, and enjoy the show!
