In one of my favorite writing books Bird by Bird, Anne Lamott urges aspiring writers with these two pieces of advice:
- allow yourself to write sh*tty first drafts
- write only what you can see in a 1" picture frame
Lurching back into the blogging world has given me an opportunity to do this again, to just put something down! I don't intend for it to be anything of any ultimate significance to anyone else, but a forum to get myself writing again. Once upon a time I was a prolific blogger and stopped in my own best interest when my blog became a place to fall apart in a very public way when my life imploded. I am in a totally different place in life now, and I think I'm ready to throw myself back into something I loved so much - and in even this small way, discipline myself as a writer.
So here goes..... and thanks for those of you who have always encouraged me along the way.
