If there was ever a time to write, it’s now

I recently described writers as ‘a bunch of wankers’, in retrospect, saying this to my husband’s boss at the Writers Festival probably wasn’t the best choice. But I stand by my words.

And by wankers, yes, I mean masturbators. 

There is nothing wrong with masturbating, self love is a healthy practice and nothing to be ashamed of nor shamed for.

But, I don’t know if I want to share it with everyone, nor that everyone (or anyone) wants to see it.

Yet here I am writing (wanking) with the intention of sharing it with whoever wants to see.

This pandemic that is forcing us into social isolation will create opportunity for creating, and for others to view those creations.

And as much as I wish I had the talent to draw or paint beautiful pictures, I don’t. I create with words. 

To help keep my brain engaged, my creative juices flowing and perhaps, to challenge my own beliefs about the lack of importance/influence of writing, I am starting this blog. 

I am wanking for all to see. 

I’m hoping to provoke thought or at the very least entertain some of you. I suspect this will also act as a diary as we move into the closest-to-home, threat to our society (cuz who pays attention to global warming?) that has happened in my lifetime.

I may even include a place for you readers (hopefully assuming I’ll have some) to ask questions. This will be done with the aid of my amazing web developer, Karen. I suck at techy stuff. 

Our online community is about to become much more relevant. And flooded with wankers. 

Here’s hoping we writers do justice to you readers and put on a good show.
