I decided to take up this blog challenge for myself because a) I have no idea what I am doing, and b) I want a sense of belonging in this vast cyber world. I love writing. It has always given me a sense of peace and an outlet for me. My self..wandering through my mind, in a daze with pieces of poetry, lost sentences trailing off into the never..
Writing provides the stability where I feel I have none. The anomaly is that I also feel the most free. I can be me, or not..I can be fiction, or reality, subdued or chaotic. I honestly do not have a preconceived idea of what will come of this. I do not look to it for a million followers, or likes. I share my words simply because I want another person out there feeling the same thing to read my words and feel content..”I am not the only one”….No, you are not my friend…you are not alone..
The other reason I am choosing to blog publicly rather than in a journal means exposure. Again, I do not mean with popularity. I simply mean..nakedness..unclad. When you write in a journal, there is a tendency to leave out key notes..descriptions, the details and fine print. Why? Because we are writing to ourselves. We know the minute descriptions..we do not need to write them down. However, when writing publicly, you are more aware of the fine points needing to be expressed so someone can follow along with your story. Without these details, one would be lost in your words, and I don’t mean that in a good way. It’s almost like a connect the dots, but there are numbers missing and the picture can never fully complete itself.
With that being said, there is not much of a filter applied. My topics will vary. Some will be guided based on the journey I chose to partake in with the Zero to Hero challenge. Others will be the ball of yarn in my brain…trying to untangle the knots. Either way, the audience I look to attract will be the ones who find me by chance, and follow me due to their passion for what I have written. Whether it is a love hate relationship, my purpose is to solely stimulate the feelings, hidden deep within us. Either way, welcome to my minds eye..carry on if you care, and feedback, always welcomed.
