Shocking as it may be , I have been writing since I was 8 years old. It seemed that even though I had an outgoing outward persona, I was truly a deep thinking introvert who desired to protect my true voice.
When, i was younger my writing went through phases. At first is was the imaginative stuff of pre teen experience. As I hit my teens and early 20’s it was the testosterone driven angst or romantic fantasies. My 30’s brought adult frustrations and trial and tribulations. My 40’s seems to tie it all together.
I started writing publicly, because I realized I have a voice and perspective. i never really expected anyone to read or yet comment on my thoughts; however from time to time friends from different eras of my life have responded and provided feedback and input on my writings. i have found this to be a truly flattering offshoot of this project.
You see I feel we all have at least one book in us. I am ready to write mine. I just can’t decide from what angle. My life has been through many different transitions good and bad. Do people want to know my truth? Can they learn from my triumphs or from my mistakes ? I know I can make a difference.
So why does Todd Glassberg write ? I have to say it is I feel I can make a difference. I can be read anonymously without the fear of human interaction.
Do you have a voice? Are you anxious to share it? Your feedback will help me shape ,which direction I go.
