So, I recently was working hard on a new post, only to find out all my subscribers got e-mailed out a drafted version of it.
Needless to say, I am feeling unhappy this occurred. I was really excited about my post and getting to share it with everyone. It has been a few days in the works, but now half of it has been shared with my lovely followers. I could not even imagine how an author would feel if a drafted section of their book was stolen and published to the public. You work so hard on something, and sending it out before it is ready is traumatic. I am feeling horrified, and it was just a blog post.
To be honest, it took a lot of energy just to start writing a post recently. I have always sided with honesty on my blog, because it is one thing I have always respected above anything else from other people, and especially other writers.
In honesty, I have been going down a pretty bumpy path recently. Or at least, I’ve been learning A LOT and I have not been able to take in what it all means yet. I have wanted to share all the details on here, but they have not been just my difficulties. Therefore, I found it was not right of me to divulge. Generalized statements do not do it justice and so I have held off saying anything. It is a strange feeling having something to say and a means to say it, and yet staying silent.
My favorite stories are the ones that pull you in and wrap you up in their presence. The ones laden with details…. because the details make it REAL. TANGIBLE. LIFE.
I hope at some point in my life I can tell this chapter, but right now everything else feels superficial. The only thing I can liken it to in an author’s perspective is writing a story you are told to write, while holding one in that constantly whispers in your ear “I’m here, tell ME.” Until I move on or unleash this particular story in some medium, aching silence will have to do.
Finally, I am so sorry if you were inconvenienced with a half-finished post from me in your inbox. It was definitely unintentional, and I feel as though I have learned my lesson when using the WordPress app on my iPad.
Don’t worry, I’m still writing, but I think it is just going to be for me for awhile. Until then here is my life in pictures….
Have a beautiful week!!
