The First Post Is the Hardest…

By / Jessica Leake / 2

So after spending an obscene amount of time trying to launch this website (I didn’t know I was so internetz-challenged!!) and searching for a template I liked (still looking…), I then agonized over my first post. I wasn’t sure which aspect of my life to focus my blog on, so I decided on primarily a writing one with a dash of former-therapist-now-turned-stay-at-home-mom. I hope to write the post I always loved to read: the How I Got My Agent post :). Maybe even some querying advice?

The problem with my having a blog is that in spite of being a writer and a therapist, I’m actually really terse. A lot of times, I have trouble expanding on my thoughts. I’m just like: and that’s how I feel. The end. I also edit as I write, which slows everything down. I also have difficulty believing anyone would actually want to read my random musings…except my mom (Hi, Mom!!! Love you ;)). But since everyone and their cat has a blog now, I think I’m probably qualified to join in, right??

    Jessica, I always enjoyed writing. It’s like any art, just pour out what is inside that you think and feel passionately. Congratulations on getting started. Good luck.

    Thank you so much, Brian! I love what you said about writing; that’s probably the most important part :).
