start line

From the start

I spent a long time thinking about how I was going to start this blog off. I really wanted to hit it with a BANG! You know what I mean?

Well, in the months since I registered this name and started thinking about the BANG that I was going to deliver to the internet, I did a grand total of nothing.

Trying to be great was meaning that I wasn’t doing anything at all. I was sitting around trying to be smart and exciting without actually doing anything smart or exciting.

So, I came up with a new game plan – just write.

Just write something.

ANYTHING.

It doesn’t have to be smart, clever, funny, or exciting. It just has to be something. And you know what? It feels really good. No more procrastination. No more delays. JUST GET IT UP THERE.

I’ve committed to writing at least one thing a week from now on to try and get over the habit of doing nothing. The articles are just going to be things that are happening in my life, nothing amazing, but they will be me talking about what it’s like to grow up as the first generation after the Manhattan Project.

Oh, and for everyone who’s wondering why I chose the name, it’s because Major Leslie Groves was a distant relative of mine and I’ve always had a fascination with the power, beauty, and destruction of nuclear energy.

Thanks for reading! I’ll post more up tomorrow.

So that’s where I am right now – writing something.
