First Day


“If we wait for the moment when everything, absolutely everything, is ready, we shall never begin”

Ivan Turgenev 1818-83

Therefore, I begin. My name is Laurel McDonald and I live in Riverside, California. I am a writer and an aspiring author. One definition of aspire is to long, aim, or seek ambitiously. That seems to sum it up for me. I long, I aim, and seek ambitiously to be an author.

Dream and try are synonyms of aspire. I want this blog to be a place I can follow my dream, as well as a place I try to connect with others.

This is the first post of my first blog, and I feel good. Does anyone out there have any tips for  how to run a successful blog?

    Nice beginning post. I know, however, that you dream of being more ambitious as you aim to connect with potential readers. What genre do you seek to author?

    My dearest, smartest, most ambitious wife, I couldn’t be more impressed and proud of you. You keep me surprised. I love you, Johnny
