Okay, what have I done?
I am accustomed to messing up. That's the way I function. At this point, I feel like I am asking myself, "Why Am I Here?". I already have one blog, Moonlight Hollow. So why another blog? Originally, I started The Renaissance Chick so that I would have a writing outlet. I needed a blog which would allow me to be me. Yes, I am me in Moonlight Hollow, but you know what I'm talking about...the other side of me...the side my Mother constantly reminds me to keep under control.
So, how is the writing blog going for me? I post pictures with captions...only dipping my toes in the water. It has been so long since I revealed my inner self, I'm not sure if I can still tread water anymore. What if I bare my soul and sink straight to the bottom without anyone reaching out to pull me up for another lap? Or worse yet, what if I put it out there for all the whole world to see and the words cause no ripple and no one notices and I drown in my wordless thoughts?
Then there is always the danger of offending. The me from years ago would never have thought twice about the offensive word. A woman with opinions will offend. Perhaps it has been my career for the last twelve years which has made me shy from stating my opinion loud and clear, but that career is over. The old me is clawing her way to the surface...tired of being suppressed and hidden away from judging eyes...tired of being discouraged from making the political statement which might offend.
I have decided that followers come and go, but those who support with an open mind are here to stay. Hang with me. I might find my voice.
