I’ve been writing for a long time, for myself mostly, as a sort of running stream of consciousness. What I’ve taken public has usually been under a pseudonym. Not everyone digs my piquant nature, you see.
But you know what? In my real life, it seems like I’m always having these cool, interesting, inspiring conversations with people. Sharing life experiences. Making connections. Sure, I piss people off now and then…but what fun would life be if everyone was the same?
Not much if you ask me. Wouldn’t be much reason to get out of bed if there wasn’t something new to learn, different territory to explore, dark places to shine light into, shit to confront.
Just the other day someone I had just met, after a very contemplative back-and-forth about whether or not dreams about loved ones who have passed actually mean anything, said to me, “You know, you have great stories. You should totally do a blog.”
And I went home and thought, “Huh…she’s not the first person who’s said that. Maybe she’s right. Maybe it’s time.”
Et voila! Acerbic blonde was born.
So enjoy…or don’t and move along. It’s all the same to me. The stories are the stories, no matter who likes them & who doesn’t.
Sometimes you’ve just gotta write.
