For more years than I care to divulge people have been telling me I should write. Well, you know how it is when someone says “you should…” I would just smile and say to myself, “Unless Thalia and Calliope magically come to my aid, it ain’t happening.”
What did happen? A whole lot of life, that’s what. Everyone has had something difficult to deal with at one time or another. It serves no purpose to detail my particular challenges. Suffice it to say those challenges brought me to this place where I’ve succumbed to the dreaded “you should write.”
I don’t believe my writing is any better than anyone else’s. It just happens to be the one thing I have at this moment for a creative endeavor. My best hope is that it will be fun and not become a chore.
The truth is, I find it curious to be blogging. After all, isn’t everything under the sun already being blogged? Journaling never did it for me as a DIY therapeutic exercise or as a medium for creative expression. So, here I go, trying blogging on to see if it fits. TBD. Next time, a little less this and a little more that.
