I didn’t just get up one morning and say to myself “I think I’ll start blogging today”! I thought about it for at least a week! So why have I chosen to write one? Does it matter? Writers should write, and not just in their own comfort zones. My comfort zone – though not an easy one to survive in – is writing for children … getting inside their heads, living their lives, seeing and hearing and feeling as they do.
But to blog is to write for adults and I don’t even know if I have an adult voice … I mean other than the how-to articles I write for Creative Writer’s Notebook! Can I be creative in journaling for everyone on the planet to read? Perhaps this is the reason for blogging – at least for my blogging. I need to find that adult voice and speak for myself for a change. We’ve got lots to talk about on this quest – family, music, writing, travel, and oh so much more. Want to join me on the journey? You are welcome to come along.
One last word before we begin – my motto in the realm of writing critique is “first do no harm.” Okay, not original, but still appropriate. So go ahead and make any comments you care to make … I can take it … but play nice!
