So, pretty much anyone who is reading this right now knows me (hi mom). Maybe someday this will spread to people who don't know me. . . or at least aren't biologically obligated to love me (still hi mom). That being the case, lemme explain what it is I think I'm doing, polluting the E-tmosphere with yet another useless blog from another self-important young adult.
Basically, I like to write. I won't say "I'm a writer," because I haven't produced the quantity or quality of work to do so. However, I have been writing for almost as long as I can remember - and before that, I was telling myself stories and making up games to play in daycare.
I guess I have some aptitude for it. The writing/story telling. I'm way to old to be telling the other kids how to play in daycare. . . according to a handful of people who love me (and one English Professor from college) I have a talent for this and they think I should be writing more.
On a related note, I've had several suggestions about how to get more writing in, how to expand myself as an artist, etc. One of the top ones was "start a blog."
So here I am, obediently doing so. At first I was really nervous about this. Who is going to read this thing? What am I going to say? Should I be aiming this towards family and friends who are far away and want updates about my life? Or towards a general public that doesn't care about half the details aunties and long-distance-best-friends do?
You know what I finally decided? It doesn't matter. I have a built in audience of one (I love you mom). I pretty much always have something to say. And most importantly, I'm doing this because it's something I love to do. And that's what it's all about.
That, or maybe the hokey pokey.
