To a New Beginning

First of all, I should warn you, I'm not a pickup artist. I am not a seducer of women. I'm no Mystery. I'm not even that good at picking up girls. So why am I writing this blog? More importantly, why are you reading it? At some point in time, I will be a master pickup artist. And at some point, you will wonder how I got my start. It is here and now. I write so you can bare witness to the path I stumble on as I reach for this goal. And I won't do it alone. Some of you are going to help.

I know what you're thinking. "Why blog about it? There are a ton of blogs out there from real professionals who know their stuff, who can help way more than you!" That's true. But this blog has another purpose: I want to learn to be a writer. Stories fascinate me. I love hearing them. A long time ago, I used to be good at telling them. Somewhere along the way, I lost that art. I want to get it back. I want to be able to paint pictures and scenarios with my words.

So I'll tell you what I'll do. I'm going to post every step I take, every approach I make, in as much detail as I possibly can. We'll see every little thing I do wrong, and everything I do right. Maybe this will be informative. Hopefully, it'll be at least somewhat entertaining. And maybe, just maybe, some of you will join me in this little adventure. I've always been a firm believer in the power of numbers. My father always said, many hands make light work. It is as true of this endeavour as for any other.

So here we go... a new beginning:
