I love writing and I’m quite introverted so sometimes writing is the best way for me to reach out. But, since becoming a journalist I have had the hardest time writing in my own voice about topics that truly interest me. Now don’t get me wrong, I love journalistic writing. But when it is your job to approach writing from an unbiased, non-slanted view, it makes writing about your own thoughts and opinions a little more difficult.
Do I even have my own thoughts and opinions anymore? It makes me wonder sometimes.
Has my job made me indifferent to the issues I write about every week?
I’m not sure.
What I am sure if is that my hope for this blog is that I am able to work on that writing muscle I seem to have lost in the last few years.
But bear with me because as I am finding out; getting started is the hardest part.
