"You have a face for radio."
I think about that sometimes when I am blogging.
I write to be creative and because I was not as good as I needed to be at drawing and photography. Goodness knows I can't sing to save my life
My talent was in commercial art but before Photoshop. I am positive if Photoshop was a class when I was in high-school, I would have gone down a whole other career path.
I was told that I write like I speak. I disagree but only by a little. I am nicer when I write than in person. I think my voice as a writer is thoughtful but I do tend to rush a bit. In real life I tend to say the wrong things but with the right intention. I guess I do write like I speak.
I use to think that when I am old and gray I will just spew whatever nonsense comes to mind. I am becoming that person albeit slowly.
I am finding little patience with the stupid but instead of telling them, I leave it be and walk away. As tempting it is to comment on some outrageous things I've read on others blogs I just click to another site.
This could be a sign of maturity. Or not.
I tend to shy away from controversial topics because I truly believe not everyone can be right and you have to do what you think is best. Everyone is right these days and feel the need to tell you. I don't want to add myself to that list.
I like escaping into my world of books and imagination. I've had enough of real life and drama. I want to share what I've found because I want to put something into the world that will help, not hurt others. I want to express myself in my voice and hope that I can convey that I mean no harm and share the hope I feel.
If my voice, glowing from this screen, reaches out with a small, but meaningful contribution to the world wide web than I am thankful.
I also feel I have more to say about my voice in writing but I am at a loss for words. This is why I will never right a novel or screen play. I don't think I have the vocabulary. I'll stick to blogging.
