It's Why I'm Here
I was writing something and needed some information one day, so I Googled it and was looking at a few different results. One of them was someones story here in EP. I read it, and then looked over the site a bit.
I had been having some difficulties writing, suffering some blockage in my brain, so to speak. I wasn't getting anyplace in the story I was writing and thought that EP would offer me a wonderful place to write.
I had seen some experiences that I shared with others, and my thoughts were to use them for a topic. I could join an experience group and then write about it. Since they were shared experiences, I knew I wouldn't have any trouble coming up with anything to write about, so I joined my first experience and was on my way. I wrote a few stories and read many more. Then one day when I logged in, I found that a pretty gal had invited me to join her circle. We exchanged some messages and developed a friendship, and soon many more developed with other lovely people.
In a short time, EP turned in to more than a writing exercise, and I wouldn't change any of it for anything. Over the last year, friends have come and friends have gone, but the one constant has been a place for me to write. It's changed a bit though. It's no longer an exercise, it's a way of life, a way to share my writing with my friends, and others.
I may not be a well known author with best selling books, but I have my friends and people who enjoy reading the things I write about. For me, that's what being a writer is all about, you, my readers.
Thank you all. After all, what's the sense in being a writer if you have no readers? Like any other performer/artist, it's not about me or what I write, it's about you...
