I’ve wanted to be a writer ever since I was a kid. Like all writers, I began as a reader. Reading and writing were both parts of me that I didn’t share with anyone else. I have recently “broken into the business” and published my first novel in Kindle format on the Amazon Marketplace. And yet even now, I use the pen name “G.D.” to keep my anonymity. Why? Because your identity, in writing, doesn’t really matter. What matters is your words. Nothing else.
My greatest inspirations in writing are Virginia Woolf, Ayn Rand, and J.D. Salinger. My favorite works are The Fountainhead by Rand, A Prayer for Owen Meany by John Irving, and To the Lighthouse by Virginia Woolf.
To those following this blog, I will post on a daily or once-every-two-days basis, so there is always fresh content. I will post about my publishing progress, what I’m currently working on, what I’m currently reading, and random inspirational tidbits I find. I will also exhibit my short fiction, poetry, or other essays from time to time, to build a repertoire and repository for my work.
And most importantly, I encourage you all to let me know what you’re up to and what you’re writing as well! The best part of being a writer, of course, is exchanging words with other writers.
