Thank you! And yes, i mean YOU!!

14 June, 2012

I started this blog about 3 months ago because i felt i needed an outlet for the depressing and confusing stuff that often goes round my head. But I haven’t really done that very much, and the reason is that i am in a much better place lately. I still get dark days, and I’m sure i always will, but they have been less common.

And i think i can put at least part, probably a large part, of this down to YOU, the WPers, the blogosphere. I thought i would be shouting into the dark (which would have been fine – the shouting would have been therapeutic in itself) but there are real people out there who listen, respond and offer support and advice. I have stumbled across some fascinating people, had honest conversations i never thought i would have with strangers, and developed an unhealthy obsession with stats and notifications.

I have realised that being a writer need not be a lonely pursuit. OK, noone else can write the words for me and i have to be alone while I’m doing it, but there are loads more people out there with the same unexplainable urge to write. People who understand the pain that can result in not being able to do find exactly the right phrase, or the frustration when a character (that you have created and lives only in your head) disobeys you. But who also understand the emotional and even physical high when it comes together and the words that come from, well wherever they come from, fit so perfectly together.

And like every other writer, i am a reader too. Reading and appreciating the words that you write, and the passion and energy that you put into them, is a real joy. Even if it does sometimes intrude on the time i should be writing.

So thank you bloggers, readers, followers, droppers-by. You have helped me and entertained me more than you know, and i look forward to getting to know more of you.
