This “On Writing”, I take a look at the power of blogging – namely showing the truthful opinion to the world that is not couched in the wrappings of a fictional story. (Picture Credit: Summer, Flickr)
Blogging is a strange creature. A measure of truthfulness, of actual opinion and actual story, but conveyed with words.
Words, for me, have always been a method to cover up. To conceal and camouflage my true ideas an opinions. Something that I am still trying to unlearn, and it is a struggle at times. When you write the truth, it is hard to find. Especially, for someone like me, when the truth is something so repressed and hidden within myself that on most days it can never be found.
Trying to give opinions on writing is like trying to give an opinion on anything – fucking hard. But I’m trying to use my writing as a way to discover my true voice that has been repressed and hidden, and to try and learn what my own opinions are. Which means starting with opinions on writing.
