I was sitting here listening to the rain rattle the roof trying to think of a good subject to write about. I happen to look back at my older entries and realized that tonight is the second anniversary of this blog. I have written something every day for 730 days. Now there are those who would argue that some of the tripe I have slid by was actual writing, but I say hey, walk a mile in my shoes before you cast a stone.
The blog has definitely honed my writing and forced a discipline which had been lacking. So many of the great writers say that the only way to get better is to read and write....there is no substitute.
I now use the blog as a stepping stone for the columns I write each week for the various papers. I'll take an idea and expand upon it.
I am grateful for all of my faithful visitors who have stuck with me even when the entries were gibberish. I value the comments and encouragement. Thank you all.


  1. Hey Rick,
    No matter what anybody says, keep writing! One never knows when a masterpiece will appear. And you've written many. I don't know how many times one of your entries has hit a nerve and there I go racing down memory lane again.

    I've enjoyed everything you've written, even the occasional gibberish. At least it was not gobbldegook!
