Silentwriter is a name I’ve carried throughout my writing career. It started off as a journal, and as I became having problems with seizures, nightmares, and memory loss, writing became more of an obsession. Mainly to help myself heal. For the last several years, I’ve been working on not only songs, poems, and short stories, but also on an autobiography. Something, however, I have never had an intention of publishing. I guess that’s where the ‘silent’ came from.
There is one group I became a part of about a year ago, called Experiment Project. A friend of mine had introduced me to the site, with the knowledge that it would help me to open up and share my stories, but the name ‘silentwriter’ was already taken. I had a hard time figuring out what to do. I had joined under another alias, but it just didn’t feel write. Then one day, I was sitting at the park, writing, getting frustrated with a little bit of writers block, and as I normally do, I ‘did a 180 and started a new erotic story’, and that’s when it hit me ‘silentwriter180.’
So, now, when I start up with a new group, I always do so as ‘silentwriter180.’ It just fits me to the tee!!
