This is where I am supposed to tell you all about myself.
I guess I can provide the basics, without getting too philosophical. (Trust me, you don’t want me to do that. We’ll be here all day.)
My name is Chris Wood (I decided to use the pen name “The Voice” NOT because of the television show, but because my blogs were intended to help me find my writer’s voice) and I’ve spent a great deal of my life learning about all of the things I don’t want to do. For the first time, I’ve chosen a new approach to life and now I’m following my heart and letting it guide me towards whatever lies ahead.
I’ve pretended to be a writer (in my head at least) for many years and only recently have I decided that perhaps I should give it a try in the real world. I’ve found I have enough talent to string some words together and form coherent ideas so why not challenge myself to see what I can really do? My two blogs, Dumasaphobic Diatribes (for my non-fiction work) and The Well of Fiction (for — surprise surprise — my short fiction) are my attempts to test myself and the waters of professional writing. Each new day truly is a small adventure in my new journey and despite the fact that I’m always broke and have really no idea what I’m doing, I’m having the time of my life.
I don’t know what brought you to my page, but if you’re reading this you clearly have some interest in me so why not follow me and see what adventures we might take together. If you’re a writer with a modicum of talent, chances are that I’ll follow you as well. I try to learn from everyone I meet.
I also appreciate comments on my posts. Thank you for stopping by.
