Prologue or Just Another Entry?
Okay, someone/anyone who reads my readable diaries at DD1 and DD2, may find me a little bit odd or wondering why I am writing a prologue so late in the game and for a diary. Well, it has come to the realization of my own life that I am doing this to protect myself and others who are in my life today, tomorrow, and in the past. What I write and share in my diaries (that are readable) are my own thoughts, feelings, and experiences, and they are only one-sided or told only by me. I do not mention names in my diary – initials only to protect those I write about and permission to use names is necessary when it comes to writing a book or story about them. It is just common curtesy to ask for permission for using a person in a story. Writing initials in a diary pleases me just fine as well.
Why am I writing a “prologue’ now? I am just asking others to respect my diary and entries and be aware that I did not create a diary for my entries of thoughts, feelings, and experiences to be abused or used by others in any way. My entries will be considered copyrighted from this day forward. Also, I read other DD writer’s diaries as well and respect their writings of thoughts, feelings, and experiences. I want the same respect, and in the past, I have come across some real doozy comments come from people who are not even members of DD. Spam messages is what I have come across as a member of DD ever since I began writing in an online diary and today I am happy to say that has finally quieted down for me.
I consider a prologue while others may call this another entry. I can see it both ways. I observe all the time and feel like I am always sitting on a fence seeing both sides of everything around me when it comes to that point in my own life. Being an observer is a job that can have its ups and downs. Knowing what to do at times is the tough part of being an observer, and in the past to present day, I have had my share of observation ups and downs. Some days I just want to scream, cry, and sleep it off while other days I want to dive into what I am doing with gusto and have at it.
I will have a copyright symbol on all my entries from now on. Please respect my wishes.
