Keith: (searching for a response)
Professor: Seriously, it's not very good.
Thus began my writing career. I was a junior at Gordon College when I received this news. I wrote a short story loosely based on the movie Friday Night Lights.
In the diner was a picture of the four friends at midfield before the championship game. You guessed it, holding hands (just like the poster from the movie).
I actually thought it was a pretty good idea for a short story.
I attempted to get feedback from him, but the most he could muster was, "Keith, I don't know what to tell you it's just not very good."
But here's the thing. I really like to write. You want to know something else? I actually agree with the unnamed professor, my story wasn't very good.
Which is exactly why I'm starting this blog. I think I am only an average writer, but I think with practice, I can become much much better. Unfortunately, if you choose to read this blog you will experience me awkwardly fumble through sentence fragments and incomplete thoughts.
But, over time, I hope to improve. Maybe eventually I can even stumble upon something profound.
In the meantime, please enjoy this comic strip constructed by someone who shall also remain nameless...
