So, reading some of my old journal entries on other websites, I start to wonder.
Writing isn’t a gift, it’s good training.
You train yourself to write everyday, every thought, every opinion. Eventually, you become a writer. Now, I’m not saying you become a good writer, that’s all up in the air at this point.
What I am saying is, to better understand yourself, it will always take a non-partial third party. In this case, what makes a better jury than the Internet?
How well do we know these people who’s thoughts we read? Who’s lives we become fascinated with, who’s very souls and dreams we tangle ourselves around??
Not well at all.
We know them about as well as we know your everyday celebrity, for what is a celebrity than just a regular person who’s name is just a bit more well known than yours or mine?
Some people might read what I write and think little of me, and some might think otherwise..and some others, well maybe they think nothing at all.
I have no problem with that. I write when I feel like it, usually while intoxicated, or working on it, and I don’t think I have anything of interest to talk about.
All I know is pretty much what you see here. My thoughts, opinions, likes, dislikes…petty squabbles and all that. If this isn’t making sense to you, I don’t care. It makes sense to me.
