I’ve always dreamed of writing the great American novel, but I never knew if I could drink enough bourbon to be the southern author I wanted to be. Still, I figure a man has to try. Everyone needs a life goal.

So, I’m sitting here on the back porch of the family home and I get a bit distracted looking out over the creek. It’s a beautiful spring evening here in southwest Virginia. The red buds and the dogwoods are in bloom. The birds are singing. I’ve always loved it here.

From Chapter One of Not Much to Write About, a work in progress.
