I’ve only had rare times in my life when I actually was afraid to write. I guess it’s because I’ve never been threatened because of my writing before. Yes, as in threatened with a libel/slander lawsuit. And the worst part is that I haven’t even written anything deserving of the accusations. The real problem isn’t with me, but my family and I have certainly suffered regardless.


It’s funny how I always seem to get into a blogging mood right about the time I have an article due to HBTM. Maybe it’s my way of gearing up to writing the article. I’ve been thinking lately that I don’t write enough in general; I think writing just for the sake of pushing words out can be a good thing, good practice like Julia Cameron and Natalie Goldberg encourage.

Deleted some stuff. It’s hard to be myself when I’m not sure how transparent it’s okay to be.
