Mid Air Words
What does writing in mid air look like?
Does it feel elevated, does it flow?
It it enlightened, spacial, grand?
Does it feel high, tall, cosmic?
No. it feels same as on the ground:
haunting. Scary. Exciting. Lonely. Introspective.
Writing is an art form that doesn't depend on space out in the field,
but rather of space in the heart.
Space in the mind.
Space in the soul.
It took me so many years to announce to the world 'I am a writer!'
But in truth, I've been a writer since as long as I learned how to write.
My need for expression found another outlet.
And another truth with it: writing doesn't rely on reading.
A writer doesn't write in order to be READ.
A writer, like myself, she writes in order to feel. In order to understand.
In order to think.
In order to get to know herself.
If she dares to share, well, then, she also wants her writing to make a difference.
To affect others.
But when she writes...
Air or land: she writes only for herself.

In April 2020, while experiencing her first ever global pandemic, Tamar Pelzig pledged to write something every day, even if it's only a word, so she welcomed to the world a daily blog to keep her creative writing wheels rolling.
