Losing my blog virginity....

I've been dying for a place to use this cartoon since I saved it.

I've never blogged before.  Really really blogged anyway.  I fooled around a little when I first made a profile on MySpace, but never gone big league.  I don't know if I am capable of this type of commitment, but I'm going to give it go anyway.  I mean, why not?  It's actually a lot like talking to myself, which I do a lot, but now no one will laugh at me or try to medicate me.

My main problem will be:   I am super judgmental.  Especially of myself. I love to write and be creative, but I've NEVER been able to finish anything that I didn't have to turn in for a grade.  Mostly because when I go back to edit it.....I second guess everything I wrote and revise it to death.  So.  Even though I'm currently about 1/3 of the way into a story that I dreamed up....I know that it will never get finished if I don't learn to write without berating myself right out of my own ideas.  Especially since I dreamed up this story almost a year ago, and haven't finished it because I can't stop myself from revising what I have written.

This blog will be a lesson in writing without overly second guessing myself.  I will not process my thoughts through my "Diplomacy" filter a hundred times before hitting that big orange "PUBLISH POST" button.  Consider yourself warned.
