Bet you thought "Oh Goody,Smut!" Sorry to disappoint you this is just my way of drawing you in--my "hook" as you will.
When I first joined Gather it was an attempt to put myself out there and do something other than obsess on my OCD and PTSD and various other phobias. "Do something" was what all who really know me said.
At first I moped around, reading but not commenting (I was petrified I might get a response) and then I found a few friends, people I could relate to. Uh-oh, my old self started to emerge and I began writing and commenting. Before I knew what had happened I had people who I connected with, people who had essentially "been there". Others who I just enjoyed the playful parrying with as well as their amazing talents.
I now proudly "Dance Naked" amongst my new friends and family without trepidation. I feel a part of something and, finally I feel valued as a person, a writer.
To those who have allowed me to bare my heart and soul without fear of condemnation I send Many Smiles To Guide Your Way And Light Your Path When You Feel Darkness Creeping In, and I invite you to join me as I continue to Dance Naked!
