|The Insecure Writer's Support Group|
I have just recently started to Blog, part of the reasoning for me to start was seeing Alex everywhere...every blog I would visit he was there commenting. Seeing all the support the Bloggers had for each other let me have the confidence to start writing. I started my blog about a month ago not knowing what to do, or where to go. I had no idea of what to write, and I had not written anything in what might as well be an eternity.
I have found that blogging has been very therapeutic. I can just write about whatever I feel like. It is a way to vent , and just let it all hang out....well I do wear clothes my wife and kids make sure of that. I am a goofball, geek, dork..I just like what I like, and love to express myself.
I remember writing in English class and having to read our stories out loud to the class. I would always make it my job to include all my classmates in the story, to the dismay of my teacher. I found it humorous to put real people in ridiculous situations. Somewhere in back of my dark demented mind I had control of them.
To see their faces as they were put through the ringer was priceless. I always loved acting up on the stage, my most memorable was in college. I was in a children's play Raggedy Ann and Andy, I played King Koo Koo. Acting for kids is great just over act! That fit me to a T! I would go over board to get the laughs. One performance when it was my time to exit the stage the lights went down like always, and as I stepped off the stage to the stairs so did I! Luckily as the lights came up I stayed in character and blamed the steps. What is the point of my ADHD ramblings you say. I feel comfortable in front of a live audience.
I am still feeling out writing to someone I can't see, but if I just imagine everyone in their
underwear seats, I'll be fine.
Are you insecure in your writing? Do you love to torture the characters in your writing?
Do you need a live studio audience?
