It feels odd to have a post about posting, but that’s where my heart leads me in this edition. Since last fall, I’ve become both more and less active on Instagram.
Less so because I used to visit it daily. And if I’m being completely honest, while social media can be a wonderful experience, it can also be a stealer of time.
More so because I’ve emphasized quality over quantity. While I now only post twice a week, one of those posts provides a peek behind the curtain of yours truly. I explore moments that occur as a part of my daily life. They’re things where I discover something extraordinary in an otherwise ordinary experience.
It’s what I love to do. Write to connect with others. Whether it’s through a short story, novella, full-length novel, or a 2200 character Instagram post, finding that common ground with other people out there in the world is what makes writing such an endearing form of self-expression for me.
My most recent post dives into thoughts on authenticity and vulnerability. And here’s where I divulge my own authentic and vulnerable self. I write those posts for anyone out there who might enjoy reading them. But I also write them for my future self. We all need encouragement and support, and it can originate from an infinite number of places.
