I am one of those people who watch the stars (including famous authors). It’s kind of like a dirty secret (well maybe not so secret with some people) that I keep. I am fascinated by fame and one day hope to be in the limelight (although since having children I am scared of them becoming part of that limelight even if they don’t want to).
I’ve noticed a quality in my favourite stars that I know I want to have if my goals ever come to fruition. Genuineness. I don’t want to be that ‘unattainable’ figure to people. I want to be someone who people feel they can relate to. Someone people feel that they can approach. I want to be me – both in the limelight and behind the fences of my home.
It was with this thought in my mind that I realised that my decision to focus my blog on just my writing was not going to work for me. Detaching my writing from my personal life was taking away that element of genuineness that I wanted to keep.
Now, I don’t have to go out exposing all my private dealings to the world, but I can talk about me and my experiences a bit more openly than maybe the next person. You can get to know me and perhaps I can get to know you.
