I considered writing stories about events and people in my life for many years. I finally got to a point, where it became possible.
Truthfully, however, it was more a matter of being brave enough. My road to this point has been a bit tough at times. As I continue to open up and expand on my stories, I will reveal more about this road I’ve travelled. Maybe some of you will find common threads with your own stories.
I am a shy person, when it concerns opening up to people. The idea that people would enjoy reading something I have written still amazes me.
I am writing this short, non-story, post to say THANK YOU! My blog “Call Me Lou.” has reached the small milestone of 100+ WordPress followers after 21 posts. While it is still a “baby blog” compared to most others, it has become a huge part of my life.
My wife told someone the other day that her husband was a part-time attorney and a full-time writer. I never thought of myself as a writer. I just figured I’d share a few stories that might have meaning to others.
I think of myself merely as an amateur storyteller.
Many of you have left comments on posts, which I have enjoyed. You have allowed me to become a part of your community. I have had to drop my armor a bit and let people see a parts of me that are normally hidden. Your encouragement has made me feel welcome and valued.
Thank You all and I look forward to writing and growing with your continued kind guidance and encouragement.
