Like with some many challenging things we decide to tackle in life, getting started is often the scariest part of the whole experience. Writing is like that for me. I love the feeling I receive from “doing” but the idea of starting always scares me. This year I have learned that the joy I receive from writing is worth the risk I take from writing.
164 posts later, I think I managed to answer that question, anything and everything!
Blogging, and writing in general, has been so much fun for me. It has also been a little scary. I think my thoughts and feelings about this past year can be summed up nicely with one familiar phrase. “The thrill of victory, the agony of defeat.” I remember hearing this phrase on TV when I was a kid. It was the intro to ABC’s Wide World of Sports. Often, this is exactly how I feel about what I write..sometimes I walk away pretty satisfied, other times not so much.
I am looking forward to another year of writing and blogging…the victories and the defeats!
