You’d think by 2am on a Monday I’d be fast asleep, getting some much needed rest for the work day ahead… but nooooo, here I am watching Angie Dickinson on dvd in the 70s cop show, Police Woman, and writing Posts after posts.
I really could write all day long these days…in fact I could wax lyrical about certain topics, but I fear I may end up saying some stuff I really shouldn’t, so I’m trying to keep everything breezy. You know, like Monica’s answering machine message to Richard.
The more I write, the more I want this to be what I do all the time.
I got such a nice pick me up this evening when I stumbled onto a forum that was discussing one of my blogs at large ( Trapped Between Two Girls ). Several people chipped in with “this guy is hilarious!”, which is the best thing a writer like me can see.
I pride myself on being able to bring out a laugh no matter how serious or sad my content is. If you’ve lived through the things I have, you tend to go one of two ways. (I’ll let you guess which ways they are).
I’ve always done that…and I’ve always felt I’m one of the best at doing it.
As any good writer, I’m ridiculously critical of my writing, and in order to stay focused on writing something, sometimes it takes hours of staring at a blank document before ….
*holy cr@p…Angie Dickinson is going undercover in women’s prison in this episode! Sweet!!!* …..dammit…now where was I?

Ah, now I remember, sometimes takes hours of staring at a blank document before inspiration strikes and the exact right topic comes to mind.
I occasionally write stuff I don’t publish. They can be about irritations in my life, family, or even love revelations that I don’t want people to see.
When something feels right to be shared, I share it. Sometimes I choose the wrong things to share and feel the “wrath” of those who take offense to it. I’m ok with that, because at the end of the day just like my words are my opinion…so too are theirs.
One day, and one day soon I’m going to have to make a big decision about my writing and where I take it.
Song writing (?)
Blogger for hire
Plus there’s still that Tell all autobiography that gets a little thicker every day…
Yeah… why not do all of those.
I’m so glad I’m a writer-slash-model and not the other way around.
Here’s a quick poll question….which of the above styles of writing do you enjoy most from me? And what would you like to see me try?……
