size matters

My mom asked me a question and I realized you might have wondered at one point or another.

I write here.

But I also write at Aiming Low.

Every now and then I do freelance writing at places like SheKnows, Women On The Fence, and BlogHer..

Some of those articles seem long.

Longer than anything I write here.

But, here, I have a thought and literally vomit it out onto my keyboard.

You’re also welcome for that lovely visual image.

When I write for Aiming Low or anywhere else, it takes time.

Sometimes it takes hours, sometimes it can take weeks.

Even now, I can go back to posts I wrote a year ago.  I feel the changes in the writing.  I feel the changes in me that had to happen.

Here, more than anywhere else, I feel I can write without my bra spellcheck worry.

Hey, mom. how’d you like that title? I came up with that JUST for you.

    I’m putting this message here ‘cuz I’m catching up from your March 29th post, Anissa.

    Anissa, you probably already know this, but you are married to an AMAZING man! Peter’s comments @ 11:56 AM on 3/29 were so extraordinary.

    It really shows the depth of his love for YOU that he didn’t chose the EASY route and bring you home and stick you in bed w/ a remote. Sometimes in our humanness, we want to make it easy for our loved ones. But when you REALLY love someone, you have the option of choosing a more difficult road for them so they can get back to who they really are–because that is what they really want in life.

    So much inspired by you BOTH. Now before I leave this box, my brain cells are reminding me to say: No go get tomorrow, Anissa (like you always do)…

    Ironically, I was just wondering about how long it takes people to come up with the brilliant posts like the ones at Aiming Low. I’m lucky if I come up with one mediocre post in a month, let alone on a regular basis.

    This is a great personal site. There’s nothing wrong with a little verbal vomit, I’m prone to it myself.

    While your other articles are valuable or funny or just plain insightful, it is here that your heart and soul shine through. I love your voice Anissa.
