I saw you comment on a poem earlier today, I think it was Jacob's poem, and you said something interesting like "I just write for fun." Something along those lines.
And it made me think, perhaps I'm burning on you too critically and I should lighten up or just leave you alone if "just for fun" is all you inspire to in writing, but believe me, everyone I talk to on this site wouldn't be here if we didn't enjoy writing as well. A lot of us have been writing for a long time, and through critique from the people before us with fellow writers with us we've come a step closer to honing our writing skills and that's what I encourage from all writers, to hone their skills, expand their minds, and experience more out of life. I think after a certain length of time you will decide to bring writing up more to the forefront and it evolves from being a mere hobby to a part of your life and the words you write down are pieces of you that you share with the world, so in that sense it becomes very personal and serious, I take what I write seriously, with detail and thought, because it is a piece of me, not necessarily a lot of time either, some pieces I've worked on less than 15 minutes but some spanning over a couple days. But time isn't always a factor in great work.
sort of...but more i got the feeling of the baggage hindering anything new that could happen...
i have had new relationships with the past hindering...and the new person would say.."i'm not her, i'm different---so let that go so we can make us work"
kind of had a hint of going either way with this...but then, that is not a bad thing...probably read myself into it...and if a reader can do that...it is a successful, universal piece...
