Of everything I have ever been, and of all that I have ever done through my First 48 ©, writing has remained a constant.
I remember where I was when this passion first took flight. It was at a long gone middle school in my hometown of Hamilton. I have even written a story about it.
I have been writing for almost thirty years through a hiatus or two and I have a lot to show for it. Well, some of it has been lost and much remains in notebooks and miscellaneous folders on a drive, but there is quite a bit out there both thrown together and edited through quiet nights, for everyone to browse.
My greatest professional accomplishment thus far was being an elected Trustee for the local school board where I found much of my creative inspirations as a youth.
From paper boy at twelve to computer-aided designer. McDonald’s counter staff at fifteen to the inventor of Animation Stencils © at twenty-four. There isn’t much I haven’t tried but it always comes full circle, to not enough time in the day to write the thoughts that come to mind.
Besides having run a number of personal blogs over the years going back to the Geocities days, I have also been published in local newspapers from The Hamilton Spectator, to various community newspapers. I have also self-published a few chapbooks, and have been published on other blogs including Raise the Hammer.
What will my reflection see looking back on my Second 48 ©?
