It’s hard to start at the beginning

I have been a professional editor for over two years, and I have been editing my life since I started living it. Yet for some reason, establishing an identity online has been harder than I imagined it would be. When you sit down to create a webpage, the rest of the internet is only a click away. If you avoid distraction, how do you begin to write?

When you write your first post, you are unsure. Can you just jump in and start writing about one of your soapbox convictions? Do you need to introduce yourself first?

This is my first post as MJRLawrence, editor. Words, languages, Jesus, friends, family, and teaching children big ideas using little words are a few things that excite me. I have passionately held beliefs, but I am not afraid to be proven wrong. Of the five states I have lived in, North Carolina is the coldest, but I married a man from New Jersey.  We named our dog after a hockey player.

I am currently reading On Writing Well by William Zinsser.
