|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.
