Today is my Wordiversary. I’m so glad you were able to make it. I hope you enjoy your stay here.

So, what is a Wordiversary?

On Jan 2, 2015 I started a chain that I have not broken.

I have not stopped writing everyday since last January 2nd.

So today on Jan 2, 2016 in order to celebrate this very special anniversary I have written my first blog post, on my first official writer/author blog.

A writer blog is an essential. At least that’s what I’ve been told by many of my writer buddies. It’s important to practice writing. It’s important to practice writing what you know, so you can write about things you don’t.

I didn’t know what sort of advice or knowledge I could impart to fellow writers. After all, I have not published any of my writing thus far. I have not won any contests for it. But in a small way I believe I have achieved something great.

I was a procrastinating writer before I started my write chain. I would write only when the mood would strike, when my fingers begged me to type or scribble. When I was told I should write a blog for writing, I laughed. All I could ever teach someone to do is procrastinate.

I’ve learned since then that even the greatest writers of all time continued to learn.

Thus with the start of a new year I have created my new project, “Write Improvement”.

“Write Improvement” is about how creativity can have an positive effect on someone’s day to day life. I hope to have future blog posts on: creating a writing routine and how to do so under various circumstances, and fun ways to break down writer’s blocks.

I would like to thank Faye with @WriteChain on twitter for the inspiration of my very own write chain. I would also like to thank Karen Kavett for her “Don’t Break the Chain!” calendar that has helped me to keep track and put a smile on my face with each new link throughout this year.
