To Be Read

by Pj in Writing

I write.

I am not read.

So, I am going to do something. It requires a vulnerability that I have chosen not to explore or expose.

chapter 1I am sure there will be many who will scoff and scorn, but I have finally reached that moment in life where I have decided to just do it come what may. Maybe I will grow up and not care. Maybe I will discover that I am not good at it or maybe, just maybe I will recover the ability that I believe I once had. I would like that very much

I accept the fact that I have thin skin. I know I will be hurt. I know I will be criticized. I know there will be days where I will kick myself for posting the latest page before it has time to “ferment”.

I know many will take pleasure in finding all my spelling errors and grammatically incorrect sentences. I know I do. I also know that those mistakes can take the reader right out of the story. They take me right out, but maybe I will get better.

And every day I choose to be brave enough, I hope that someone may smile or cry or think or remember and feel something good and true for themselves.

And if not that, then maybe my throwing care to the wind will breeze past your window and encourage you to expose your under belly come what may.

But that is not why I am doing this. And if you don’t get that, maybe someday you will.

I will do this.

Because, I write.
