I want to become a writer. Besides school assignments, I haven’t practiced much at all. Paper and ink just seem too much of a hassle, I’ve never really taken to journals and the idea of creating a physically tangible stack of murmuring memoirs sounded a little – just by a tad – more ego stroke-ingly painful than deciding to create a virtual heap of rants. Therefore, I have decided to start a blog.
I see this as an opportunity for unlimited, unabated, unscripted creativity. I certainly make use of many blogs and have watched the progress of some pretty horrible writers lead to something worth while. Some blogs I follow have even manifested into the REAL world – imagine that! Concerts, books, catering companies, art shows. There is much to be learned from blogging and I finally have come to admit it. More than anything, I need to get back in the habit of feeding my creative mind.
I’ve encountered two types of blogs: useful and self-absorbed. I am making a promise to myself and to any who choose to read my posts that I will stray from the latter and provide only the former. There is nothing I enjoy more than receiving something great, inspiring, helpful or mainly just positive. Thus, I am provoked, summoned and inspired to offer the same to you, the world – at least that is the world who is blogging. =)
By the way, that exclamation point was entirely worth it.
