It’s just a fucking journal for me.

I was told I write very blunt and poignant. Said reader also said they are intruding.  It annoyed me. By putting my posts ‘public’ I’m allowing anyone to comment. I write how I feel and things that are going on. I don’t write for creative purposes on here. I don’t think of metaphors or a beautiful way to write something. If I’m feeling miserable and its just plain misery, I’m gonna say I’m miserable. I’m going to write exactly how I feel, if it includes metaphors then so be it. I’m not writing for readers. I’m writing for myself. I put it on public so I can feel like I’m talking to someone.

I wrote how hungry I was since my mom died. Is it supposed to be put beautifully? Is the point of the entry ‘hungry’ supposed to be put creatively? I mean, comment whatever, freedom of speech, etc. But I can write however I feel like. It’s a fucking journal.

  1. Sorry, that sucks. I, too, have felt the sting of having my journal writing critiqued. Rubs me the wrong way. Sorry for commenting, but I just wanted to let you know you aren’t the only one on this site who feels this way.

  2. Nononononono dude that was a compliment. I really liked it. I don’t think I made that clear. I mean, I know your writing isn’t there to please me, but I thought it was powerful and I wanted to let you know.
    I don’t mean to objectify your struggles as art, but I did find it artistic and I thought that might please you. I like things that are blunt and poignant. Devoid of pretense. I like feeling like I’m intruding. That I’m able to see a really intimate part of someone’s life. I think that’s beautiful.
