Okay so I wanted to do this before but I've dealing with some stuff as most of you know because you read my poems and random thoughts and feelings. But this is just one giant thank you to everyone who has read, commented and liked any of my pots in the past 2 months.
Writing is a very personal and private thing for me to share, especially the poetry stuff so I was a little weird about posting it for anyone to read. It's pretty much like giving a key to the inside of my brain and that place can be dark and scary so for anyone to actually take the time to sit and read the inner workings of my brain is pretty awesome.
I never really shared this writing part of my life with anyone but now that I've been getting such positive feedback and an overwhelming amount of support not just from the community on here but also people in my life, it just reaffirms my love for writing and how I'll never stop. Even if no one is reading, I'll still be posting because above all writing is for me.
I don't verbally express myself as often as I should which is why I write down how I'm feeling. One of my favorite quotes of all time is by Sylvia Plath and I hope I'm not misquoting her but she said, “I write only because there is a voice within me that will not be still.” (I checked because I'm that paranoid lol)
And that's always been my reason for writing. So thank you to everyone who has followed me...over a thousand of you...WOW! And thank you so much to everyone who voted for me for the Golden Comma awards and I'm just really happy *virtual hugs* to all of you
