The good news – I am inspired to write because I started blogging. The bad news – I am not very patient and the learning curve is steep. The surprising news (although in retrospect I don’t know why) there are a lot of blogs with the same purpose as mine (capturing family stories) and it is hard not to feel inadequate by comparison.
So here’s the bottom line. I’m not sure where I’m going with this but I’m having fun (mostly) even though I get frustrated (frequently). The internal voice that says I’m wasting time is my “you are not a creative person parent voice” that has successfully stifled any creative endeavors for most of my life and it is very hard to ignore.
I want to explore all kinds of writing and creative endeavors on this site but I still struggle with why I would want to be vulnerable to the world and who really reads this stuff anyway?
