Yes, I do see the irony of naming a blog "Putting Pen to Paper," but the idea here is that it's a writing blog! Besides, there are plenty of times when it's better to write the old fashioned way. Why, you ask? Well, if I'm writing for catharsis, it's pretty cheap to buy a new notebook and/or pen if I get a little over emotional. It's not even near cheap if the poor, defenseless laptop bears the brunt of my emotions.
So there will be all sorts of writing here. I'll probably type up whatever I first write by hand. If the carnage is really impressive, maybe I'll just upload photos. I'm looking to be published, I'm trying to freelance, and I need writing samples. So thank you, guinea pigs, for checking out my samples.
Please, please, comment freely. Critique away! I have pretty thick skin, and take criticism quite well.
