I have a spotlight blog here today at storyfinds.com. It is about how blogging has made me a better writer. Learning not to flinch. Here is an short excerpt:
So I blogged about sex. And fear of fatness. And being a widow. And bankruptcy. And cancer. Personal stuff like that. I got better at it with practice. Writing about things that hurt became a way to heal the wounds. I knew the audience was there, but I couldn’t see them. Still, many connected with me and told me that what I was saying touched them. Made them laugh, cry, feel squeamish.
If you are interested in the writing process, you might enjoy reading the whole blog so just follow that link. If you are not interested in the writing process, it would bore the crap out of you. So move along with my blessings.
