When I first decided to create a website for my book, I knew that I wanted a website that would allow me to easily write posts documenting my progress. The platform I’m using is totally new to me, and it’s infinitely customizable. Since I’m a pretty low key person, I decided early on that I would take a minimalist approach to creating a website. I will be tweaking my website and customizing a few features, but for the most part I am going to leave it as you currently see it. I like this layout and color scheme. Having said that, if you would like to make any suggestions for future improvements on this website, please feel free to comment in the box below. It will send all feedback to me.
Some of you may know that I used to write songs / poems once upon a time. I haven’t written anything in at least several years, but I was inspired to write a song / poem for the front of Tales of the Canoe. This is how “Journey to the Sea” came to be written. It’s a very sad piece, and it makes me quite sad to read it. I’m not ready to make it public just yet, although my wife and a few people who are near and dear to me have read it and given me feedback on it. I may post it on this blog eventually, so keep checking back. I met with Ethan today, and he and I had a good discussion about ideas for the book. He is writing my foreword, and will have a chapter of his own in the book. Ethan is a very talented writer who underestimates himself. He feels that since he’s had no formal training in writing, that his writing is not “good enough.” But I beg to differ. I’ve read his writing, and it has my seal of approval.
I may or may not write another verse for the conclusion of the book. That remains to be seen. But for now, I’m grateful for the way that “Journey to the Sea” turned out.
I will have more later, so keep on checking back. As always, thank you for your interest in my book.
