The Apprentice Writer's Chronicles - Intro

Dear Blog Reader,

After much pondering, I have decided to chronicle, in an un-chronological order, my trials as a growing writer (well, I certainly hope I'm growing...).

So what does this entail? Basically me ranting and raving about all the hoops (original French swearword edited out) I have to jump through to make it in this crazy, torturous world.

Just kidding.

It'll basically be me explaining/telling of my latest tribulations, what I've learned, etc, etc.

So why do this? Well, first off it turns out my research posts aren't as popular as I'd hoped them to be (which I think is a real shocker 'cause seriously, who doesn't find science--pseudo or other--fascinating?). Then, I figured perhaps some would be interested to see the writing world through my mildly myopic eyes (well the left one at least).
Ah-nyways, that also means I'll be posting more often (at least once a week) and NO, before you ask, I won't stop with the research pieces, I'll just alternate them :)

There you go. Hope you're happy!

--The Writing Apprentice


  1. Now that's what I'm talking about! Writing a blog about writing? Now that's recursion for you! It's like a perpetual motion machine - it can go for ever and ever and lousy laws of physics to tell you otherwise.

    Also, it's not your fault Ms. Ellefson but this is the WORST comment textbox I have ever encountered. The freaking arrow keys don't work! Neither does CTRL+BACKSPACE, CTRL+DELETE, home, end, or anything! They should make the whole webpage monochrome to give you the full effect of being in the 1960s. Maybe they need to replace their vacuum tubes*. Sorry, I rant. Great! I'm excited about the new blog!

    *whoever got that is a certified nerd

  2. Dang it, I totally got that reference. Where's my certificate blue82?

    Glad you're so excited about this new "feature" (let me stress that part out as I'm going to keep on putting up the previous kinds of posts). I'm excited too, especially since I'm hoping it will allow for a lot more interraction on the part of you, my blogosphere friends :)

  3. I look forward to seeing how you progress as a writer. Keep up the good work!

  4. Thank you, Jennifer! I look forward to it too :)
