New to reverse lens macro

I picked up a reverse mount ring for my a6300 this week.  Put it on my 50 mm 1.8 mm SEL Sony lens and mounted it reversely on the camera.   When I turn it on, the only things that are remotely close to in focus are at a distance.  The closer I get to an object, the blurrier it is.

I’m guessing I’m missing something obvious, but maybe someone here could point it out?

Thank you.
