Chess: It begins

Sep 6, 2007, 1:16 PM |

Well I am a 34 year old single dad who knows very little about chess.  Though I have always been intrigued by it and always wanted to learn. So I figured it was about time to begin.  I also am some what of a writer hoping to get my first book published by early next year.  So I look at this as a learning opportunity as well as a fun relaxing escape from my work and busy life.  I plan on cataloging my experience as I learn to play this age old game called chess. 

What I know; well very little.  I know what the pieces are called and how they are allowed to move, but beyond that I don't know much.  I love the idea of the game, the strategy and the mental preparation prior to each move, that is what I hope to gain as I start my study of the game of Chess. 

So, with that let the games begin.
