I lost my blogging virginity today. Yay me!!!
I had my words misconstrued, misrepresented, misunderstood. Pretty much all the mis’s anyone could have. Bound to happen, I suppose. Startling that it did. And that’s why I put off writing for so long.
I have been so reluctant to write publicly because of all the fears I’ve had. Not being good enough, not having anything to say and yes, being misunderstood. All scary shit. No one wants to put themselves out there to get smacked down or made fun of, or told you are wrong. But its going to happen. People see what they want, read into things. All of it.
That’s the beauty of us. We have the chance to see, and interpret. All my artist and musician friends, and now my writer friends (you know who you are), you are the bravest people I know. I’m honoured to have you in my life. Silly,brave fools.
I won’t stop writing. I can’t. It’s not even an option. It has been such a part of me for so long, it’s like a twin. Real me, writer me. I will evolve (God, I hope!), and hopefully get better, and deserving of your reading, and my fellows fine company.
Wish me well, or don’t. Your choice. But know that I celebrate all of you, just for doing it.
