What to say, what to say!

I want to be a writer. I have thought about it for years. Could I be a great blogger? Would anyone want to read what I write? These questions have kept me from trying for many, many years. As a teen I wrote all the time. We called it a diary in those days, our deepest thoughts jotted in locked journals or note books or scrapes of paper stashed away from prying eyes. I poured my sole out on those pages. But a horrible thing happened that stopped a budding writer in her tracks. Those private pages were found and used against me. It almost cost me my friends, my boyfriend, and it changed the dynamics of my family from that day on. My trust in others was altered in a few short moments, especially when it comes to sharing my very deep feelings. And isn't that what writing is about, sharing your deepest feelings?
But back to my title, "What to say"! I come up with my most unique ideas at the most inappropriate times, like driving down the road...why is that? I need a little voice recorder that I can voice activate to get my thoughts down so I can write about it later. Perhaps a gift to myself when I reach my first goal here on Spark people.
