Hi – this is the site where I write. I am drawn to writing. And I feel like something is missing if I don’t. Writing a book is too big a job for me right now. I lose momentum. I despair. Little blog posts work better.
So why don’t I just keep my writing for myself? Why not just write a diary or keep my thoughts in a notebook? Somehow it doesn’t feel like the real deal unless my writing is out there. The things I merely read or merely think and don’t speak or write of leave no traces in the world. No one other than me can engage with them. I think it’s more fun to have potential readers for my writing.
There’s a bit of a paradox there. The writing is really done for myself. As a daily writing practice. But to make it real, I expose it at least to the possibility of readers. And if there is anything any reader finds particularly good, bad or ugly, I would be love to receive comments and feedback.
In my day job, I’m a civil servant. So I’m politically impartial in my public statements. None of what I write is meant to be political – about politics maybe sometimes, but not a political view, definitely not a party political view.
