This is my first official post to my new blog, Wet Feet. The posts below are highlights from my LiveJournal, PrettyUgly.
I find myself nervous and tounge-tied over writing this post. I wanted to come here and say why I'm doing this. I am having touble being honest. I am self editing like crazy. If I were talking, I would be stuttering.
I guess I want to throw myself out there and see what happens. Will people read my blog? If they do, will they like it? Will they comment? WIll I ever get a troll? I want a troll. I want someone to come here and try to hurt me. Then I'll know that I've arrived.
I want to learn to write knowing that I've got an audience. My writing has always been done in secret, with complete privacy. I've shared parts of my writing with a few select people, a few times. I always thought that if I knew someone would be reading it, I wouldn't be able to bring myself to be as honest as I want to be. I want to unlearn that.
So here it is, my new blog, my New Year's present to myself. This year, I resovle to blog every 3-4 days.
Other resolutions? So glad you asked!
-run four times a week
-try to curtail emotional eating/bingeing
-take a summer course at Penn, dipping my toe back into the waters of higher education
-value my health
-see a doctor aobut the wierd skin thing going on on my foot (thus conquering my fear of doctors)
-get my teeth cleaned (thus conquering my fear of dentists, ect)
-work consistently on array of secret writing projects.
Is that enough? I think so.
