By the time, you, my readers, read this, the Autistic Super-blog will have reached 1,000 views this year!! To say that it’s a major accomplishment for me is an understatement, so I want to express my gratitude and thank you all so much for your support!!
When I first started writing on The Super-blog, I honestly wasn’t sure how to start, or if I did, my tendency for perfection would get in the way of getting the posts done. I was worried that I was not the great writer I felt that I could be.
But now, I know that the most important thing to do is just write, something, anything at all, start by letting life inspire you then let it take you where you want it to take you. To take a page from Pixar’s animated movie Ratatouille, not everyone can be a great storyteller, but a great writer can tell a story with their own experiences.
Just look at Hayao Miyazaki’s works, which I’ll delve into in a later blog post since it’s extensive, but suffice it to say that he’s a fantastic artist and writer. He tells his stories based on his experiences and his connections, yet it’s done in a magnificent way so that it draws people to see his works.
It’s the same with all writers, including my dear friend Mikhail Horowitz, whom I’ve mention in the Super-blog before, he’s a fantastic story teller and uses music and comedy to give the story its unique flavor. Another example is another dear friend Jesse Saperstein, who uses humor and his wit to explain how he sees the world as a fellow Spectrumite. My point is that all writers can be story tellers, but it’s how it’s done they matters.
That’s the same way I’ve tried to relate it to my posts on the Autistic Super-blog, I like to be as real and authentic as I can, but do so in a way that everyone understands. I only hope I’m doing a good job at it, I’m trying to translate my experiences as I see them without anything being lost in translation.
I want to say thank you again to all of my readers for giving me the support, the feedback, the encouragement and the friendship over the years (including this year.) I’m doing all I can to make sure the support is well founded, so that we can all…
Shine On!! Thank you all again!!
