This is my blog, welcome to it. Admission: over the years, I've probably had a half-dozen blogs; they've each lasted for three posts -- or perhaps six, at best.
But I will regularly write here. I will! It'll take more discipline than I had as a schoolchild; goofy, Hardy-Boys-obsessed kid that I was.
Part of the reason I've found a blog hard to maintain was my vlogging, which I was doing around 2018, under the channel title Write Ideas on YouTube: www.youtube.com/rbyoung.
However, I stopped video-blogging two years ago. Blogging and vlogging -- too much for one guy. So, I'm now resurrecting Write Ideas as an old-fashioned, written blog.
While the title suggests topics related only to writing, I plan on using this space more like a notebook: informal, sometimes sketchy, and wide-ranging. In addition, that is, to tighter pieces like author interviews, literary essays, and event announcements.
Let's have some (mainly literary) fun.
