So you’ll see from the first caption on this page that I love the written word. I cherish it. I consume it. I live from it. I could go on sounding like an arrogant Literature Major, but that would be incorrect. I majored in English with a concentration in Creative Writing.
The difference is, I don’t just want to read other peoples work, I want write work that other people will read.
Since the publishing route hasn’t worked out yet, here I’ve been blogging along for a couple of years (March 2009). I’ve found that although not for everyone, being completely open and honest about my life in a public forum has kept me accountable to some extent. I have in no way shape or form become perfect about habits or lifestyle, but I have become a better person from realizations on this blog.
I can get caught up in trends, bad chick lit, teen paranormal romance, and Grey’s Anatomy Marathons on Lifetime. I find that being brutally honest will get you the same response, which is not always what you want. I find Sugar coating things can be more damaging.
I am not apologetic on who I am, although at times defensive, it comes from insecurities I have in every aspect of my life. Show me understanding, and I will try to see it your way.
I’m not the easiest to get along with, work with, or be married to. I’m just trying every day.
