Justification

I feel like should keep up with this little thing called a blog since, for so long, I had it on my heart to start one. In a weird way, I feel like a sell out. Why blog when I can be doing some real writing? I could be working on my novel manuscripts right now, or any number of short stories that I've started and have never finished. I could be rewriting poems or drafting query letters. But I'm not. I'm writing on a computer screen for no one's enjoyment but my own.

Here's the thing: I can't write short stories, poems, or novels if I can't even write down my thoughts on a regular basis. My head is a chaotic mess of ideas, random thoughts, musings, amusings (I think I just made that up), quips, questions, and untold stories, etc. If don't put these down somewhere, I'm never going to be able to write what it is that I'm supposed to write. I'm never going to get anything coherent down on paper. So, here I am, trying to make sense out of things that might never make sense at all.

Is this my justification for blogging? I suppose so. Take it as you will, but you will take it.

Love,

Rori
