A little introduction of myself and what my goals are with this blog.
Hello! Thanks for coming. To start, my name is Salvatore Serio (Sal for short). I am a writer, a father, a former sailor, a history lover, a geek. Of course, if you have explored my site, you may have gathered that much already.
So, what am I about? Why am I doing this? Well, first off, I feel it is high time that I make myself public. After all, I want to be a writer, and I’m gonna need a presence to establish myself. So, here we go.
So, what will I talk about here? Well, as an author, I try to see the world from many perspectives, not just my own. I also have a lot of interests that I love to talk about. Sometimes, finding like-minded people can be a challenge (at least, in my circle).
Here are some topics I may discus over time:
- Personal stories and experiences
- Posts about my own writing and projects
- Posts about World Building
- Entertainment posts (reviews, previews, or general thoughts)
- Gaming posts (video games, role-playing, even old fashioned table-top games like Monopoly might make a showing)
- Pretty much anything else that I may feel compelled to blog about.
On the topic of Role Playing Games, I recently started a campaign with my daughter utilizing the game system Amazing Tales (which is designed for young readers). I will be posting a series of blogs chronicling our adventures.
One thing I should note, I am trying to avoid anything political or ideological. Don’t get me wrong, I have my passions and if something really begs me to express my feelings about it, I will. But I try to avoid anything divisive. The reason for this is, I feel, that there is enough of that in this world at this moment. If I DO post something that can have a divisive response, I ask that we agree to disagree and focus more on the things that we enjoy together.
I’d rather help bring people together through what we love, be they games, movies, books, or whatever.
That said, if you tell me that a favorite character of mine, from a movie, book, or video game, sucks, we WILL fight!
Anyway, that about sums up my intentions here. Feel free to leave a comment and let me know what you think. I love discussions and look forward to many as I establish my online presence and get to know a lot of you.
