I have a confession to make, not a serious one really, and certainly not a naughty one, but a confession all the same and it is about my writing on this small Blog.
Over the last couple years many people have visited me here – my thoughts, fantasies, secrets and opinions – and some have been in touch personally; something that I have nothing against, even if it does sometimes take a while before I reply to their mails. There is one thing that all of these people, who have contacted me, have in common: all of them have complimented me on my use of the English language and my writing.
Of course I am always open to compliments, who wouldn’t be, when it comes to my Blog and to many other things. However, I have to tell you, what you read here comes straight from the source. It doesn’t stop anywhere along the way or wander off in weird directions before appearing online. When I write here I simply write; whatever comes into my mind appears here, eventually, and exactly the way I have been thinking. There is no great editing process, no planning committee – although I do use my notebook a lot – and no one who says fine, that can go out to the world. I correct the spelling, and that’s it.
My Blog is a little like a diary, except that anyone can see it. With my other writings, few that they are still, I spend hours poring over each and every word so that, sometimes, the spontaneity is lost. Here, in my little world you are sharing, you can read the real me, scary as it may be sometimes!
Love & Kisses, Viki.
