I thought today I'd try posting something I've been working on. It's the first chapter of a novel I'm writing. Actually, I'm hoping to turn it into a screenplay, but I thought a novel might be easier to sell, especially since I don't live in a major filmmaking hub.

Hello new followers, I hope I don’t disappoint you. I want this place to feel like home, where we can escape the Thunderdome and process the world. Where we can post dog pics and recipes and book recommendations. Where we support each other as we get sober, lose weight, embark on new business opportunities, creative endeavors, relationships and travels. I want this to be your oasis of sanity and laughter in an increasingly mad world. A creative outlet where you can share your spirit with us.

We might not have any control over the news cycle—but we can control our habits and attitude. It all starts with us. And hopefully a little piece of that will start here.

Two more days of this and I'll be cranky, tho.
