Who am I? What am I looking for?
My name is Brady, I am 27 years old. I want to write. That's the skin of it.

The real answer is that I have this burning desire in me to share something, to create something. I wouldn't say that I have writers block exactly, because it's more than that. I don't just want to write, I want to make music, movies, I want to draw and paint, I want to put the images in my brain out there for the world to see. It's everything, really.

I'm not saying that I'm a brilliant artist. I'm not the best writer out there, in fact, I have a lot to learn when it comes to the arts. I'm not rich, I don't really have time for classes, I would like to join a writer's group but I just haven't really looked into it. At this point I think the biggest obstacle in my way of writing and creating is... myself.

What can you expect from my blog?

When I was in High School, more than ten years ago, I had a Humanities teacher that had us write in notebooks each day of class. Sometimes she would pass out items for us to look at while writing, we didn't have to write about that item if we didn't want to but it was always fun seeing what she would come up with next.
I'll be writing about what's on my mind, mostly. You'll find that sometimes I can be a little weird. It's just the way I'm wired. But this blog is titled 'Hunting the Muse' for good reason. I would hope that this blog might help other aspiring writers and artists out there. Hopefully some of you will find my posts to be thought provoking and, no promises, but maybe - just maybe - we can find that elusive muse together on our journey.
