This post is probably the most difficult writing that I have ever undertaken. This is real. I have been in liaison with the person concerned and we have both agreed that I should write an article concerning this person’s blog, writings and plans for the future
But it is not as simple as it seems. For this person has a male body with a female brain. Okay, as a reader I can cope with that. But this person has an extra burden to bear. The female brain switches from female to male and back again. How the heck can anyone cope with that !! One minute you are thinking feminine such as caring, sharing, dainty things and the next wanting to go to the pub, get engrossed in a football match and wanting to fight. This person has a predominant female mind, so most of the time has feminine thoughts, therefore in all aspects except the body this person is female. To overcome this overwhelming burden this person writes and writes extremely well.
How did we meet in blog land ? I had tidied up my emails and as things were quiet I went through Find Friends/Life and scrolled down the posts and there in front of me was this picture and underneath this fantastic piece of writing:
She sat, shocked beyond words, beyond thought. She sat at her desk looking out at the rain running down the glass and wondering if it was the tears of angels. She was sure they should be.
She thought the teacher was talking but she couldn’t hear. Didn’t really care. What was the point really? Why try so hard when it could all be taken away in the blink of an eye?
I went in. I really honestly thought, as the writing was so good that I was reading the thoughts of a teenage girl. And commented as such. Over time and reading the About page with all the comments and to the person, it emerged all the issues this person has to face. We conversed by email and this is what the person said:
“I am an amateur artist, poet, and writer. I am planning on entering this year’s NaNoWriMo in November. There are a few other contests I am thinking about, but currently they are little more than maybe’s. As for NaNoWriMo, this will be my fifth year. Last year I barely managed to finish the 50,000 word goal and in the end I found I couldn’t take the idea any further and it now sits quietly in a folder on my hard drive. This year I am coming at it from a different direction with the plan of not necessarily writing a complete novel, but to have enough done to be able to continue working once the contest is over. In the mean time, I am writing poetry, though I have nothing really planned other than to post to my blog. I am also gaining an interest in flash fiction, working on pieces of between 200 and 500 words. I’m not sure where I might go with this, but I do find it keeps me interested in writing.”
I have written this post as I really believe that this person has extreme courage in exposing to the world the real issues of this person’s real life. I also believe that in showing talent, in the writings, that we all should encourage, advise and help this person. Out there, reading this, are gifted professional and amateur writers and I ask you to visit, make up your own mind and talk to this person.
I will leave the blog address in my comments area of this post
