I’ve often wondered, if I were to blog, what I could possibly write about that anyone would find interesting?

I mean, it’s one thing to tell stories, I’m a good storyteller.  I craft characters that people care about, write natural yet compelling dialog, drive a story forward in an organic way.  People like my stories.  They’re evocative in one way or another.

But to speak as me, just Aud, with no characters to hide behind.  Jeez, I don’t know.  It’s like being naked in the middle of the library.  So here I stand, unable to hide behind books, short stories, essays; even the occasional note to the teacher is unavailable to me.  And I have to wonder again what I could possibly say.

I guess what I want to say is THANK YOU.  As must be abundantly clear, I do have something to say — feelings and ideas to share that I’m fortunately able to wrap in interesting packages.  I’m very grateful to anyone who spends a bit of time with the friends that I create.  I hope you find your time was well spent and as long as you come to visit, I’ll be here … babbling.

Nice web site!!!! Hope you are having fun with with…is the right hand side a copy of Twitter entries or is it like simulating Twitter on your web site. I don’t understand social media very well…what’s up with this? Karen
