I feel the need to start writing more. But most of what I want to write isn’t necessarily stuff I want to share with anyone. I just want to write them for myself…personal thoughts, writing exercises, my lame stories, plots and made-up characters. I want to write fiction, but I know I’m no where near good enough for anyone to read my writing.
So I’m trying to decide what to do. Do I write online, so that I can write from work and from home and on the go from my phone? Do I go the old-fashioned style and use paper and pen? I’ve tried that numerous times and it doesn’t seem to get me very far. I have countless notebooks with maybe a few pages written in it and it’s random crap that doesn’t mean anything. Do I just use my personal computer and write only from home (restricting me from writing when a thought comes to mind that I want to jot down and I don’t have my home computer there to capture the thought)?
At one point in time I found this great app for the Mac called MacJournal. I used it quite a bit, but when they upgraded it was no longer free. I also found a pretty neat freeware app for Windows to use at work, but neither was compatible with the other so nothing I wrote in one would transfer to the other. And I shouldn’t really be installing stuff on my work computer anyway. I was thinking an anonymous blog of sort where I can just write without anyone knowing who I am, but I have tried that before as well and I never wrote anything. Too much of a hassle to keep up with yet another totally separate blog. I already have 2 that I hardly maintain as it is.
Decisions, decisions. I am leaning more towards the separate blog though because then I could write to it from anywhere as long as I have some sort of internet access and now that I have an iPhone, a connection is much easier. Now to figure out which blog platform I want to use and where to host it. ha! It’s obviously going to be a free host, but I want to be able to customize the appearance to something very simple and clean with not a whole lot of clutter.
Nope, not telling you where it is…that’s the whole point of being anonymous blogger…to give the reader enough info to make them feel they know you, but not really reveal the whole truth.
