    dotsJournal: Finally Back!dots

    Mood: The Usual

    I've been out of the loop for awhile due to some computer problems. Hopefully things will be running smoothly for the time being so that I can get caught up with some stuff here. I've missed everyone so very much and hope that I can catch up with everybody in the next couple of days. I'm also hoping to get some time to actually sit down and write some more...words have not been coming easily to me for quite awhile. I've missed you all so very much!!!!!

    dotsJournal: Why I writedots
    -------------------------------------------
    Mood: The Usual

    Recently I've gotten a few different messages from some random people complaining about my writing. Prior to that I got some feedback about my comments that I leave. I was going to leave it all alone while the whole debate about the comment voting was going on. I have now decided to defend myself a bit here.

    Typically I would let this stuff go in one ear and out the other, but I've just had enough.

    I honestly don't write to please the masses. I write for my own healing sake and also with the hope that there are people that will read some of my experiences and realize that they are not alone. As so many others, I have been through a great deal and it has helped me to read that others have been through some of the same and that there are people that I can relate to. If people don't like my writing, that's fine by me-then don't read my stuff. But if you don't like my writing and choose to attack me about it, you can kiss my ass! I regret a comment that I made early on when I first started on Elite and have never made that mistake again. I certainly didn't attack the person, but the views that they expressed in their piece. I have come to understand other people's opinions are their own and it doesn't make them a bad writer by any stretch of the means. I've read some really amazing things that I may not agree with the views expressed, but can't ignore the fact that it was one hell of a great piece of writing.

    Anyhow, I write from the heart and if you like it...great. If not, that's fine too and you are more than welcome to tell me that you don't like it. I just don't feel it's necessary to be attacked as a person for it. As far as my comments go, I say how I feel for the most part. I've had a few people ask me to go into depth and I have no problem doing it, but for the most part, if I like the piece I just want that person to know that I read it and that I liked it. If I have anything worth while as far as critiquing I will leave that with them also. However, if 20 other people have pointed it out, I really don't feel obligated to keep pointing it out to them.

    I write for the purpose of trying to heal myself and if it can help someone else, then I've really succeeded in doing something. I appreciate every comment that I get whether it's good or bad, that's what makes us better writers. I just do not appreciate being told how much I suck. If someone feels a piece is horrible, then by all means let me know and tell me how you feel I should fix it, but it's so stupid to attack my personality for it.

    That's my take on things and you are free to do what you want with it. By all means, have your opinions and express them. But, unless you know me, don't fricken attack me.

    Have a nice day!

    Mood: Overwhelmed

    Well, I received some not so great news yesterday. I have been having strange symptoms over the past 5 or so years that no one has been able to put any kind of a lable on. In the past year they've gotten worse and have been reoccurring more frequently...so my doctor finally told me to have an MRI done so he could rule things out. Needless to say, he found out that I have Multiple Sclerosis. I'll find out just how bad it is on the 27th when I see my nuerologist. I'm hoping that it hasn't progressed all too much and that they can slow it down some, cause there's times I feel so bad I have no idea how I make it through the blasted day! I'll find out soon enough, at least now I know what's wrong with me.

    Mood: The Usual

    I wasn't gonna say anything, but changed my mind. I'm so very proud of myself and humbled at the same time.

    Just recently I've caught up with a few of my friends from high school that I haven't spoken to in a very long time. One of them being my very Best Friend from high school. Long story short...I got married, she moved away, we lost touch.

    Well, we're back in touch now and we started talking about my writing. My ex-boyfriend is the one that got me started on poetry. I have to give him props, he was an amazing writer. Anyway, she told me how much she misses reading my work and that she always admired my writing and that she started writing because of me. I was so happy that she told me that, because I feel like I've achieved something wonderful...I inspired someone else to write! That makes me so incredibly happy. Then I found out that she's not the only one of my friends that I helped get started on the writing path, the majority of them actually followed my lead and I never knew it until now. It's awesome that they think so highly of my writing...it's even better that I helped get them started on writing!

    It's just another day...I wish I understood men. You'd think that after being married for a few years it would be easier?! Hell no, it gets even more confusing!!!!!!

    Mood: In Love

    Today is my 5th wedding anniversary!!!!!!!!!!

    I don't think I've ever been so in love in my life. For whatever reason, this feels like the magic number to me, that tells me that we've made it. I'm so unbelievably happy!

    Be kind, take a few minutes to review the hard work of others <3
    It means a lot to them, as it does to you.
