Hi guys, this is a very important blog post, and I hope that everyone is as considerate and open-minded as I was with this issue.
Prior to starting this blog, I had the objective of staying on the down-low, being very cautious of what I posted and not even telling my closest friends about the blog. I guess growing up, I’ve always been the girl who who performed with her guitar and piano and writing has always been a very private matter and none of my articles and poems have ever been published online or professionally. To get straight to the point, I didn’t want anyone to know about my writing because I was afraid of getting judged by the general audience.
However, due to the positive feedback that everyone’s been giving me lately, I became very conscientious of the fact that writing is a guilty pleasure of mine and that it makes me happy.
So screw it.
The origin of the pseudonym Nathalie Apple came from a very fortunate incident that ended very painfully. This is all I can say. However painful, I did get over that little hump, and thankfully, it led me to here. To this wonderful journey that everyone’s taking with me, and to everything that it has taught me ever since. Many of you may ask if Nathalie Apple was my alter ego, if she had been different. She’s not. She is exactly like me, being that she was me. Whoa. Multiple Personality Disorder, much? Haha. Sorry, hope you guys don’t think I’m a nutcase.
So, without further ado, I don’t think we’ve met yet.
Hello, my real name is Christine.
And I haven’t even started with what I actually write about— no prison bars up, nothing holding me back.
For the first time in a long time, I feel free. And I have all of you to thank! 🙂
