It feels weird to post this. But I’ve recently learned how to take the power away from awkward conversations: acknowledge the awkwardness. You just say, “Hey, so this is awkward.” And then, just like that, it no longer is. Seriously. Works like a charm.
This same awkwardness I feel right now also happens when I discover that the illustration I want to contribute to a real-live conversation at hand is something I’ve already posted on my blog. And then there’s this weirdness where I decide which awkwardness to choose: telling them a story they’ve maybe already heard, or leading with the assumption that everyone I ever talk to has of course read every word I’ve ever written.
(Hi, my name is Narcissistic Ridiculousness. Surely you’ve read my stuff.)
Anyway, here’s what I’m taking too long to tell you:
In an effort to keep from inundating the Facebook interwebs with my meanderings, and in essence having a fan page and a friend page that are identical thereby ensuring that my ‘friends’ who also ‘like’ the fan page will be invited to read everything twice,
and I’m realizing I have perhaps spent too much time thinking about this and definitely too many words writing about this,
I’m going to post blog pieces only on The Thoughts and Writings of Tricia Lott Williford on Facebook.
So, if the FB newsfeed is your go-to avenue for whatever I happen to be processing in streams of consciousness, then Like This. And then we’re good.
If not, then proceed with the original plan.
Good grief. I’m glad that’s over with. (Does anyone else feel like we’ve just had a DTR?)
