It seems that everyone has something to say and the need to blog about it. There are blogs I can't wait to read and others that just make me wonder, why?
For the last year, I have been writing posts and saving them to publish at a later date. You know that day in the future, the one that will come when someone (who isn't related to me) is actually interested in what I have to say. Until then, I continue to write, revise and blog. Wondering? Who will read it? Why will they read it?
More research, more conversations with colleagues, more lectures about the importance of building a platform for my writing career, all the while searching for the answer... who will read it?
The answer is simple, I have stories to tell. The time has come to accept and validate this life that has chosen me. I'm a writer and guess what? Writers write and share their stories with...wait for it.... readers.
This entry feels like and introduction, an interview or maybe a first date. I thought I would share a bit of my neurosis with you. Yes, I'm a list girl, a planner, a coordinator and some (who will remain nameless) may add control freak. I live my life with a direct line into my heart and soul. My writing wasn't a choice it's a defining part of me, and has been a constant throughout my life. Now, I consciously set out to write by combining my heart with truth, the kind of truth that I love reading. Along with being a heartful type A, add a side of Dreamer, that's me. Here's my first list to share with you.
Items to blog about in the future
1. Moments that take your breath away
2. A writer's life
3. Funny, awkward, twisted takes on life
4. Through my daughter's eyes
5. Working to make this a better world
6. Stuff, (including but not limited to) books, articles, converstaions, movies, music, art...
7. Gossip, things I 'have' to induldge in
9. Adjectives... just because
10. Who knew. Helpful things I pick up along the way
I plan to go where the wind blows, hopefully in an honest, truthful, passionate, funny, caring and inspiring way. (See #9)
I hope, after reading my blog, you leave with one of my title's adjectives.
