Things I Have Learned Along the Way

Writing further into my novel, I have been carrying around in my head for some time a certain scene that was intimidating me. I didn’t know if I had what it took to write it. When I finally got to it— My thoughts now flowing back to my previous blog post. — “if you can dream it, you can write it.”— I just started writing what I knew of it and more started to come, simply put. I was pleased with what I had written and found a good stopping point. On the next day when I sat to write, I thought I would just chip away at it and get a little more, not knowing what I was going to write. What came, was great dialogue and the scene, I knew it could be. After that, I thought ahead at more of those taunting scenes without questioning so much my ability, but having faith that when I do get to them, all that I have written up to that point, will assist me and I will go through them, one by one until the end.

I am a writer living in Cincinnati, Ohio with my wife Colleen. We have two children; Noah who lives in Norwich, New York and a daughter Katie, living with her family in Alexandria, Kentucky. She has blessed us with two adorable grandchildren. I have written a memoir adventure called A Photo-Finish while living and working in Yellowstone National Park, a fantasy short story Magnolias and my latest, a potty training book It Can Happen Anywhere. I attended 2 years at Suny Morrisville College where one of my favorite authors attended and taught, John Gardner. I will always write arduously looking for the truth my characters reveal to me in their stories. Randall Johnson
