I one experience or life change results from my writing your blog what would I like it to be?
Life changing for whom?
For me or the reader?
To assume that my writing could change someone’s life is vanity, and before that someone has to read to what I write with my typo and jumbled thoughts the reader has to make sense from the nonsense. The only redeeming factor is these are typed and handwritten If it were handwritten then the comments would be what the teachers say
“remarkable improvement in writing, reveals an inability to spell!”
Writing is about a dialogue a sharing, when you publish it ,it is like saying, hey pull up a chair, take a taste. Come join us. Life is so endlessly delicious. Life is about experience. You can’t hold on to everything and writing helps to let go.
Like Stephen King put it, the most important things are the hardest to say. They are the things you get ashamed of, because words diminish them. Words shrink things that seemed limitless when they were in your head to no more than living size when they’re brought out. But its more than that, isn’t it? The most important things lie too close to wherever your secret heart is buried. Like landmarks to a treasure your enemies would love to steal away. And you may make revelations that cost you dearly only to have people look at in a funny way. Not understanding what you said at all, or why you thought it was so important that you almost cried while you were saying it. That’s worst.I think. When the secret stays locked within not from want of tellar but for want of an understanding ear.
I’m sure it is everyone’s experience as it has been mine that any discovery we make out ourselves or the meaning of life is never, like a scientific discovery, a coming upon something entirely new and unsuspected; it is rather, the coming to conscious recognition of something which we really knew all the time but, because we were unwilling to formulate it correctly we did not hitherto know we knew.
Oh! By the way, everything is writable about if we have the outgoing guts to do it, and the imagination to improvise. The worst enemy to creativity is self-doubt.
