Trying something new takes more than courage; it takes faith. Having a friend who supports you also adds strength to the mix. I’m trying something new. Blogging! I’ve written a novel that I intend to self-publish, and blogging is the first step in my marketing strategy. Talk about beyond the pale. No one has heard of me or my book! The main character in my novel, “A False Start”,  is forced to try something new or die trying. In fact, we all are faced with such a decision in our own lives. It’s the path we choose that makes all the difference.
