I have been blogging for some time, even though I did take some time off, but overall I have been writing for a while and the reason for my blog is to express myself as a man, father, friend. co-worker, husband and anything else I need to be. Maybe not a normal man, but a man that has been through a lot and I realize that over the years I have worn many hats to get through my days.
I think there is a need for me to shift my focus to maybe starting up on my actual fiction writing, as I have been talking about, or maybe writing more about my side business adventures because they seem to grab people’s attention. I have to work through things and for me to move forward with my fiction writing, I do try and read other bloggers, and of course fiction novels.
There is one blogger in particular that I happen to come across in my search, and I was totally taken back by his writing, his stories, it simply mesmerized me and I hope to possibly one day write as he does, maybe not as good, but get to a point where my writing will grab the readers attention
His name is Sebastian Iturralde, I promise if you take a moment out of your day, well hopefully after finishing my post, you will totally be taken back by his writings. It is fictional, but the stories he tells, and how he tells them are just captivating. I sometimes get caught up on one story, only to end up reading another story, it could get dangerous hanging around his site, but it is well worth it.
Of course, there are thousands if not millions of bloggers, novelists, or writers out there that you can find. I think that many of us experience only a handful that catches our eyes and our hearts and we stick with them. That doesn’t mean that we cannot expand our reading to other wonderful stories, whether they are about business, side hustle, relationships, home décor, garden, or cars I mean the list goes on, and with that the possibilities are endless.
We all have the opportunity to search and find that one blogger, that one writer, that one YouTuber, Podcaster, or whatever it might be that will take our senses to the next level. I, like many writers out there only desire to captivate our audience, keep them entertained, informed, and coming back to our site so that we can continue to engage with them at new levels. I know that is my goal, to have you the reader coming back for more.
It is going to take time, and some finessing to establish exactly what you the reader are looking for and maybe one day I will be the topic of someone’s post, on how much they love reading my stories, we shall see, because that my friends is my goal.
For now, please take a moment and visit Sebastian Iturralde at Relato Corto. I am sure that you will find a story among the many he has that will take you to another place, another world, that will have you coming back for more, just like it does for me.
With that, I leave you with a thought from Sebastian’s site, that I found to have a lot of meaning and you can see it on his About page, which says “A writer deeply feels that writing is for him the best thing that has happened or could happen, as writing for him is the best possible way to live. – Mario Vargas Llosa.
