writers

the below brings me full circle on to another topic i have brushed on before! what is it that makes you write here? is it a vent, an outlet to get rid of pent up frustrations? is it appreciation we seek? surely i am not the only one to experience a sense of addiction to this blogging. sometimes i just have to visit to dump my verbal diarrhea on you all (by the way thanks!).

do we all aspire to be writers? i know at one time i did, but then i read marquez and vonnegut and murakami and shuddered at the thought that any one of my favorite writers should have to gaze upon the tripe that i call writing! (haruki, kurt, gabriel, if you are out there stop now!)

what is it?

I have written all my life....when I first came here and started writing, it was more of a cathartic thing for me. My life has gone through many changes in the past months and it turned into a way for me to sort out what I was doing in my life. The anonymity afforded me that luxury.

The two things I could not have anticipated, however, was the impact of receiving comment which reflected different points of view; this too helped in my analysis of my life choices.

And, of course, the discovery of the poets and writers on this site. Through them I rediscovered my love of writing....and the rest, as they say, is history.

Oh, and do I ever fancy myself being a published author? Absolutely not! lol!

I like to help other people with ideas, inspirations, it is a "dummping" ground for me at times, and a creative outlet...but I really like connecting and making friends and I learn a lot here too! great question!

If you believe you fail
in comparison
to those great "masters"
mentioned above

then I am putting down
my pen ...

even I
pale in your light ...
