A Whole New World

Listening to: A Whole New World by Peabo Bryson from the Aladdin Movie Soundtrack

I’d like to start off new. It doesn’t mean that I’m leaving behind my “Personal Philosophies” project, only that I’m moving forward and not dwindling on the past. With time, I figure I’ll have a fresher perspective and better skills and by then philosophy won’t seem so difficult.

My first post — which was supposed to be my only post — has been erased… by me and on purpose. It was poorly written and unnecessarily lengthy.  It didn’t even deserve to be called a first draft, that’s how sloppy it was. So I’m starting anew =)

This blog will have a mission and goals and expectations. I’m probably not going to fulfill any of those, but I will give my best and try my hardest.

Mission Statement in Brief

To write a blog about writing. To write in order to practice and celebrate my own writing. Hopefully get some feedback and constructive criticism on my writing. To review the writing of others. To create a catalog of tips and suggestions I have found elsewhere and ideas I have come up with on my own.

Goals and Expectations

1. Post Regularly: Consistency is important to me because it something I lack and something I strive for. I want blogging, writing, journaling, reading — I want these to be my habits. I’d like to say that I’m one of those people that NEEDS to read and write, but I’m not. I could easily go days with just food and TV, and I would hate myself for it. So posting at least every week, hopefully every day, will be a goal for me.

2. Write Interesting Things: Seems like an obvious enough goal. Comments, questions, and general feedback would be much appreciated and I realize that it’s not going to happen unless I post useful, interesting entries.

3. Focus on the Literary World: As much as I could go into my personal life, I’d rather not. Normally, I have no boundaries. Discussing family scandal and personal failure with complete strangers seems to be my favorite pass-time.  But, alas, it a bad one to have. And since it is “A Whole New World” I figure this is as good a time as any to try to change my ways. I will try my best to avoid personal rants and raves.

4. Make a Commitment: I’d like to continue writing this blog for a minimum of one year. April 2nd 2010 to April 2nd 2011. Let’s see if I make it.
