I want to be a good writer. I don't even care what genre. I have been very isolated since I got out of highscool. I hated school. Often I would be writing journals of thoughts and I would skip class for it. I don't want to go back to school. It was really dreary. I fear that writing for myself, and with all the time I have on my hands, has caused me to hate my own words. I no longer get excited about my finsihed works. I have only a few people to show everyday, my therapis and my parents. Poor things, have to endure it. I never tried showing people on the internet. I am very self- concious about what people would say. I also dreamt of being a soccer player, baseball, musician, sometimes actor, and whatever else you could get so good that you are well known for, but only starting to realize that those dreams are rudimentary, "like chasing the wind." To quote solomon from the Holy Bible. Am I losing it? Your opinion might bounce off me like skipping water and then again it might discover me like pop rocks on my tongue. Hmm what should I ask to make this thread worth a damn? ....Has anyone else experience this? hmm?
