Its not a great ‘way’ atm, but I’m getting there.
I have a passion for writing better, understanding words, sentences and passage structure. I want to write, I want to be read and I want my words to be well received.
Currently I very shy of what I write, I fear peoples harsh comments, towards something very personal, something that I’m proud of and that which has so much of ‘me’ in it. This, my new found art-form, is personal, and I’m very much attached to it. To receive bad comments is to attack me personally.
So to get around this fear I have to get educated, to introduce a formula to my words, to know whether sentence structure I’m delivering is right or wrong, then can reduce the amount of criticism.
I hope in this space to experiment with my writings, I don’t expect them to all be readable. Many of them will be phrases and lines that mean nothing to anyone but me. But its important that I don’t lose anything that I think of. I will be carrying a traditional journal, to keep notes, and I will update this as and when can.
thank you for taking the time to read my words. Even if only one ear listens… then this is for you (as well as me).
