An intensely private person, blogging terrifies me. Heck, I only share my pen names with my closest friends. My goal is to recover from this fear of exposure, which is why I am starting a blog. And, yes, I will tell people about it.
Even so, the idea of sharing my innermost secrets with the world is on the same level as tearing off a limb and giving it to a total stranger. This is why I write fiction. Made up worlds and characters allow me to hide my secrets inside a fictional form. No one knows they're mine, right? My heroines spew pithy comebacks that I wish I could think of in real time. They strut fearlessly through worlds filled with chaos and violence as I remain safely behind my computer.
Well, today I'm being fearless. I'm putting it out there for the world to see. Welcome to my journey. Make sure to buckle your seat-belt, it's going to be a rough ride.
