Over the past few months I’ve focused more on freelance writing than blogging. It’s been a roller coaster ride full of rejections and the occasional high of an acceptance. But I knew that if I didn’t put myself out there I’d never know my potential.
I also discovered that the more I write, the easier it becomes to share painful experiences. It’s basically free therapy and who doesn’t like free shit?
With that being said, I am proud to have a very personal piece published today on xoJane. It’s a part of my life I’ve never shared in extent, even to some of my close friends and family. It’s far easier to express myself in writing than face to face. I don’t know why. It’s one of those unexplained things, like Donald Trump’s hair.
So if you’re in the mood to read a gritty, xoJane-y piece, click here.
Coincidentally, I have another article out today on In the Powder Room. It’s personal, too. But in more of a ridiculously sexy kinda way. Click here to read.
And if you’re ever in the mood to discuss something personal or painful, write it down. When you’re finished, do with it what you will. Toss it or keep it. It can only help.
