The Awkward First Post

The first post is a lot like meeting someone for the first time. You don’t really know how much to talk about yourself. You’re constantly checking your jerk-o-meter. You don’t know exactly what will be interesting to the other person. You’re never really sure if you’re coming off as bragging or, alternatively, overly self-effacing. But, heck, it’s a personal blog, so I figure a bit a vanity (at least in the first post) is pretty much expected. So here goes.

First off, I like books, so I’ll probably end up talking a lot about what I’m reading (currently, The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet’s Nest). I also write, though I haven’t sold anything yet. If you’re really lucky, I’ll grace you with the world’s next SFF masterpiece so that you can tell your children, your grandchildren, and even your great-grandchildren you were there from the beginning.

And then there’s food. Mmmmmm. Food. Luckily, I’m married to a brilliant chef who plies me with delicious creations. And I’m not a bad cook either. My genius, though, usually comes in the form of baked goods. I can’t promise this blog will not eventually have a foodie page.

IRL, I’m a copy editor (lead copy editor, thank you very much), but don’t worry. I know exactly how boring it would be for you to read my rants about how no one uses colons properly anymore or about why I think the Oxford comma is in fact master of the universe. I’ll keep the grammar-speak to a minimum. Promise!

Oh, there’s more. But we’ll go ahead and stop there for the time being. You’ll just have to come back to see what other surprises I have in store for you 🙂
