Excellent Post!

If you cared enough to write the post, then post it. The fact that it is important to you is what gives it validity. Don't write for us - write for you and let us come along for the ride!

Support the Women's Autonomy and Sexual Sovereignty Movements

Morgaine - thank you, I needed that...


Thank you for your comment. The follow-up is still in my drafts folder, but I will post it soon.

I like the "write for you and let us come along for the ride" idea, and may print that out as an aid to blogging. ;)

I hope I can make mistakes...

I make typos and spelling errors and I'm terrible about keeping the right things capitalized. Plus I like to use unfinished sentences and shortened words like: "prolly", WTF!, b/c and such.

But I still have something to say. I can't help it if people don't think it is intelligent or worthwhile. Ta hell wit 'em! sez I. It's not a lecture, it's a damn blog, a conversation and not all conversations are full sentences or paragraphs or talk over their audience. Everyone gets to take part or it fails in it's mission.

You *must* learn to shut out all the voices of the personas in your head that keep you from expressing yourself in any manner you want. If you keep at it, you will get better. but if you let those voices overtake you, you will never try. Anne Lamott, a fav of mine, writes about radio K-FKD, the non stop voice in your head that is conflicting and gets in the way of getting it done. I'd go into it in more detail but I lent my copy away and of course, it never came back. (I need a stretchy leash on my books, so when people let them go, they scoot back.)

Anyway, it's in Bird By Bird and you should read it. It's for writers, artists, sculptors and people just trying to live their lives and she's funny and self-deprecating as hell, so matter what, you never feel beneath her.
