Pain Is Good For Writing

I have another confession. The posts that I like the best are often those that have been written when I was most upset. I don't particularly like that. It sounds overly dramatic and I don't need nor want anymore drama in my life than I have. In fact I'd like to eliminate some of it.

But the rules of the blog are the same as they have always been and honesty is of paramount importance. If this is going to serve as my Fortress of Solitude than I need to treat it that way and that requires sharing my thoughts in an honest and forthright manner.

So some of my best posts are written when I am most upset. So what. I suspect that this is not all that different from many others. Call me an artiste.

It is also fair to say that some of my favorites have been written when I have been in an exceptionally good mood. Great, now I just made myself sound manic. Maybe this should be called Neurotic Thoughts & Crap No One Really Cares About.

Perhaps I'll end this before I really make myself sound ridiculous.

I think it's strength of feeling that shows through, whatever that feeling is.

I like it. But then again I'm neurotic too :)
