Due to harassment online, I was forced to remove the content that originally appeared on this blog post.
As a writer, it pains me to censor my work – especially when one of the most important goals of The Daily Creative Writer is to encourage other aspiring creatives to fearlessly express their thoughts, ideas, and inspiration.
Unfortunately, sometimes you have to choose between the lesser of two evils. In this particular instance, I felt it would be better for everyone involved to acquiesce to someone who seemed set on having their way. I worried the bullying and harassment would not only continue, but would escalate and – honestly – I made a conscious choice to step away from the negativity threatening to take over this blog and ultimately forcing me to pull all my content.
Of course, I will have to harness my own courage in the coming weeks when I sit back down to the page to continue on this daily creative journey. I hope this storm has passed and that I will be able to write freely without the threat of continued bullying.
For all of you – many hundreds if the WordPress analytics are to be believed – who clicked the original content, I am so happy you visited the blog and took the time to read what I wrote. For those of you who are just arriving now, please take heart – I may have been bullied, but I will be back here, writing and bleeding on the page, just like Hemmingway would’ve wanted.
