If you’ve known me for long enough then there is a pretty good chance that you’ve read a blog I’ve written or at least heard me talk about a blog. I have had many blogs. The ones I stuck with the most were an outlet of sorts – a place where I could just be myself without my social anxiety making it weird. I really miss the internet of old when everyone wasn’t online and you could be fairly candid without anyone you knew in real life seeing it. You got mean comments sometimes but no one trolled you. Ahh, internet of the late 90’s – early 2000’s – I MISS YOU!
So. Here I am, starting another blog. Chasing that old internet feeling – sort of. I won’t be writing thousands of words about my feelings but I would like to be candid about my writing. I want to motivate myself in meeting my goals by putting them out there. I’d also like to connect with other writers. It’s weirdly tough to meet other writers at my level – people who aren’t published but still take it seriously. I have one whole friend at the moment who fits the bill – HI GRETCHEN!!!!!! – but I’d like to meet more. I also want a space where I could post random things and inspirations on days when my brain feels like mush.
Anyway, hello! I’m glad you’re here.
