I also don't quite remember how the filter thing went ass-biting awry but I think this "or, to be more precise, unwilling to be seen facing." is dead on truth, or at least it matches what I have always thought was the truth so good 'nuff! :)

I know you always claimed to enjoy it -- I remember once naively suggesting you just talk-to-text your posts on your phone when you had brought up the smartphone/lack of time because helping your dad thing, and you commenting on how your *speaking your writing* wasn't the same as your writing here, did't come out the same, wasn't crafted the same, and you liked the crafting -- but it always struck me as exhausting. That is, in big part though, because my speaking is pretty much identical to my "writing" and I don't craft anything or, if I do, it's crafted before it even leaves my brain! :)

You might want to check out 750words. I know people who love it and it might be something you'd enjoy stepping in to first as you "safe space", until a month of writing every single day works out any "jitters" if you will. I have people on my flist who write in 750words and then port it here because they say just the act of writing on that forum feels different to them than writing here. More freeing. Even when they know they will likely share it here anyway, there's still a different level of letting go.

My LJ is almost completely F-locked (filtered or otherwise) now just because it is easier than determining whether or not something I post is compromising someone *else's* privacy (via google search or ljseek or whatever) if I leave it public. I know some people use code names and things for people/family/friends/workplaces to avoid that worry but since my LJ started out pretty open about who I actually was In Real Life, it's easier now to just lock everything than worry about making up a system for discretion at this point.
