When all is said and done, I'm probably just self-actualizing. At this moment, I am a 63-year-old explorer of sorts.
That was four years ago.
All 35 articles I published at this site I unpublished a couple of years ago. Even my most popular. I don't mind admitting I wasn't a good writer.
While I have pretty good command of the English language, it was clear to me anything I authored failed to "move" anyone. That included getting any feedback, let alone praise.
So I moved on to other pursuits. One, in particular, began so appropriately on New Years' Eve 2016. I've been riding a wave since. One strong enough to get those writing juices flowing again.
"My Beautiful Dog" isn't a "How to...", a brag book or even something to be considered cute and easy reading. I just don't know if the end product is a book, a blog or a waste of time.
Being an experienced researcher and marketer, I am certain readers or their absence will tell me everything I need to know.
