So, here it is.

I'm not entirely sure why I set up a blog. It's not that I have much to say, or share. At least not when I sit down in an organized way to do it.
I used to. When I was younger, in High School, before kids. I kept notebooks then. Filled them up with words and thoughts and poems and dreams.

Then I just kind of stopped.

I guess being just a kid - with a kid, and trying to make it through the day, balancing raising a child and school and work, I just didn't have as much time to write. Though that's when I probably needed it most.

And over the years, I've had moments - days, weeks, months filled with an intense need to write. To let it out. Jot it down. Record it. Stumble through it.

So I keep coming back to writing. Not the way I used to. Not in notebooks, carried and treasured and filled with daily thoughts. But scattered, here and there at different times in my life.

I don't actually know how I feel about online writing. About blogging. Just sending all those ideas and feelings and thoughts and dreams out into the craziness that is the internet.

But it seems I can't let it all out on paper anymore. For whatever reason. So here I am.

I don't even know what I want this to be about. Does it need a theme? Can it just be about - whatever? I suppose it can, right?

I guess what it is will shape up over time.

So. Here we go.

It can and should just be about whatever. Just write. Whatever. It's not the same as writing in notebooks. I have a collection of those too. There is something about pen on paper that allows feelings to flow from me more easily. But this is a fast and more accessible fix I suppose. And there is always some small part of every writer that wants to be read.
