TMI, or not enough I

It sucks that I can’t write about my entire life here. When it was just me and I didn’t have much going on in my life it was easy to document everything here. But now that my life is encompassing more people and the events have broader family and social ramifications, I’m finding that I can’t talk about everything that I want to.

In general, I’m a pretty private person and you normally have to pry information out of me (just ask my mom), but when it comes to this blog (and to a lesser extent my fiction) letting it all hangs out serves as a great therapuetic outlet for me. As great as this blog has been for getting my writing career off the ground, and building my name, I’ve much more enjoyed being able to work through some of the hardest and most exciting times in my life.  And as time goes on, that’s going to happen less and less and it makes me sad.

Don’t fret though, you will still get a healthy dose of my personal life mixed in with the slam-bam excitment of my writing ups and downs, but maybe just not in the amount, detail, or timeliness as before.

Some of you probably even think that is too much. But I don’t care…mostly.

  1. ugh. spouses who are private. what are we gonna do with them? 🙂 totally get you but you know what – you will find a way to still share and be open without being “TMI” captain.

  2. Your blog so clearly reflects you that I doubt you will drift too far. And the longer you’re married the less things seem that private. We all drift in the prosaic pretty quickly.

  3. Becky is right. I worded this wrong, because the issue is not that anyone (particularly Becky) told me not to put something up on the blog, it’s that as bigger and bigger things start happening to us, and to me, things may not be public knowledge to all our families and friends at the same time and to talk about it on the blog would be bad. Also, I’m starting to see that there are things I want to keep quiet for privacy’s sake even though the whinking writer in me might like to blab about it.

    There, makes everything clear as a state of the union address doesn’t it?

  4. yeah sorry, i just read that and thought – it’s all about being in a relationship! I didn’t mean it in a bad way, i meant what i said in jest. the way it was phrased sounded like – in this “phase” of your life which would be – almost married? – things were changing. that’s all!

  5. The bummer is, the juicy little morsels, the personal disclosures, are what I and so many others enjoy about blogs in general. … I want the unpleasant moments and snapshots of psychosis. I want the underbelly. I want to know how people think. I want to hear how they react to great news, and bad. I wanna read something I would’ve never known about someone had I not read his or her blog. So I say, let it all hang out, Bryon Quertermous.
