This is a disclaimer (because I figure I should warn you).
This blog is connected to my Facebook in an effort to share my writing with people, put myself out there, and increase the amount of feedback on my writing. With that in mind, I feel like a disclaimer is needed, just to let you all know, lovely people I care deeply about, that some of what you read probably involves you. As a character. In my story.
Most of what I write about is highly personal. I don’t feel right about changing things or disguising people…it’s a lot of work and it’s confusing for me and, quite frankly, it makes my story less real. And I love when my friends read my work. I do. Because most of you like it and say lovely nice things and even give pretty decent critiques. You help me make my writing better, and you remind me that I’m good at what I love to do.
But it’s only fair that I let you know you might find yourself in here. Your name. Our relationship. A phrase that succinctly captures the way that you eat popcorn. Something. So I just want to let you know, to warn you. Because I write about my life, and you’re in it. So if you find yourself in the pages of my story, I want you to know that I mean none of this in any secret-message, hidden-undertones kind of way. I’m just writing what’s true for me.
So if you’re reading this, and you know me, then be careful. Sometimes what I write has sharp edges.
