I can say that I really care about what I write.I also care about what other people write. I don’t always have fluffy and glittery writing grace my posts. As a matter of fact, I am just speaking from the heart and writing off of the cuff. Some people may consider my blog a hodge-podge of words that do not amount to anything, but maybe to another my words are an art form.
I write or type on here because I have something to say. I have so much to say that I could write all day long every day. But I don’t want to always share on here my point of view on major political or religious events, because Istep on some people’s toes already in my 3-D life. I certainly don’t want my viewpoints on here to do the same.
But to be completely honest, if I am writing from my own mind, and I am being a purist by saying what I truly feel then I should not care if I offend. I don’t think that any of us should do our writing, art, music or anything to please others. Don’t we spend so much of our time people pleasing in many other ways, so why worry about being judged by people who can’t even see us in person?
I think that I am going to try to not let worries about other people get in my way when I write from now on. Of course I will not write to incite or offend like some do in order to make a splash or to make a name for myself. I will do what I do in my real life but perhaps be a bit more honest, while at the same time being a little less offensive. Don’t get me wrong, I am super kind, but if people push me too much, I am brutally honest and I think I will leave the brutal off and keep the honesty.
I just hope that you all will stick with me through this process as I navigate my life as a single mom and as a wanna be writer. I like all people, want people to like me. I also want people to relate to what I have to say. But, writing to gain acceptance and a form of “love” from others is not going to churn out quality writing. But if quality is not your thing, and numbers mean everything to you, then go for it. Just don’t expect me to read it:) And, in all that you do, just be true to yourself. There is no other way to be that gives real satisfaction.

I think when people write what they are feeling and don’t put too much thought in making it sound eloquent or fancy – it’s much easier to read and more honest and the thoughts come through more like you actually meant them. I think it’s a good way to do it. 🙂
