This post, although short, is very special as it is dedicated to the 10 people who currently subscript to my bi-weekly blog. I wanted to take the time to thank you for subscribing; it's not just that though, I also want to thank you for your feedback, your editing, your interest, the "retweets", your ideas and your comments.
In the three months (as of today) that I have been blogging, I have discovered a number of things:
- I really, truly, like writing... wait... it's more like story telling I think.
- The process I go through is the same, blog after blog... I start off with an idea, then words on the page which lead to this emotional roller coaster: "I like this".... "I hate this"..."grammar is stupid (and so is spelling)", and ultimately "this is pretty good" - SEND.
- I don't know why people are afraid of punctuation? The semi colon is so much fun. Use as you see fit.
- It seems I have an opinion on many things.
I am not "pushing" this post out to any other social media, so in a practical sense you are currently the only ones who will read these words, and for that I am very grateful. I want to share this with you with great appreciation.
"I hope you will have a wonderful year, that you'll dream dangerously and outrageously, that you'll make something that didn't exist before you made it, that you will be loved and that you will be liked, and that you will have people to love and like in return. And, most importantly (because I think there should be more kindness ad more wisdom in the world right now), that you will, when you need to be, be wise, and that you will always be kind."
Neil Gaiman wrote this, who if you do not know, is the husband of Amanda Palmer... and we all know the big crush I have on her.
As they say, "all writers start with zero readers". Thank you for being my first ten.
