After I started my job doing Night Audit, I found myself dealing with people who were often difficult to talk to, and work with. I needed a way to let off steam, So I started posting short status updates about the mood an annoying guest, or co-worker put me in. Just stating how much those people frustrated me wasn’t enough, so I started writing more details along with personal commentary about the situations. My friends began complimenting me, and I learned that reading my status updates became part of many of my friends morning rituals. Eventually I started receiving requests from those friends to create a blog for my short stories, so they could share what I write with others. It took a great deal of convincing, but eventually I decided that it was not a bad idea, and it inspired me to continue writing more often.
