Hi, I’m Curt. After several years of perfecting the ‘I want to be a writer, BUT..’ lifestyle, here I am taking it to the next step. Actually writing! Alas, whenever I sit down and make the effort to get writing, I feel like murdering it. Or maybe writing wants to murder me?
I know it’s certainly not supposed to be easy, but is it supposed to feel like murder!? And Redrum Writing was born, from a wish.
This is the simple fact: I will become a writer, even if it kills me. And here we are. I hope having a blog to lay it all down in will encourage better focus on my writing. Perfecting the art of the struggling, entitled writer.
So what’s Redum Writing all about? Nothing in particular – everything in some way. This is my writing dump. Writing about my life and experiences and people in it. Writing about my daydreams and nightdreams, writing about ideas and characters, events and scenarios that will eventually come to encompass short stories or the next great American novel. Writing about my passions and my hates, writing advice to myself, and writing about writing. Encouragement and education in one easy package!
In short, Redrum Writing is about getting to work. Getting the words down.
And hey, if someone happens to find some enjoyment in perusing these random writings, all the better.
Let’s write something.
