Daily Prompt–Never


Tell us about a thing you’ll never write about.

Photographers, artists, poets: show us FORBIDDEN. 

Well, here I am, writing a post that I am saying that I would never write about. There’s something weird about this. I guess I’ll just tell you why I am never going to write a post about this topic. Okay. I just don’t feel that I could never write a post about sex.

sexI am a 60-something year-old woman who lives alone with her two dogs. I have no significant other. I have been twice divorced. I would like to find a nice man and settle down to a nice relationship. I’m not opposed to that. However, I’m not actively looking for anyone at the moment. I’m not on any online dating sites. I’m sexually active. I don’t have any sexual escapades to write about. Therefore I don’t write about sex.

It’s not that I’m not qualified. As I said, I’ve been married twice. I’ve had sex. I have a daughter who is now married herself. I have had affairs. But I just don’t feel the need to write about my sexual life. It’s a pretty private thing that doesn’t need to be shared with anyone. Certainly not the blogging community. Maybe my therapist. But not you all. Sorry.

So, no. You will not read about sex in my blog. At least I don’t think so. Not today. Well, yes, today you will because I’m telling you that you won’t read about it. But in the future you won’t read about it. Unless I change my mind.

About mairedubhtx

I am a "youngish" grandmother of 15 year old twin granddaughter who has recently (is a year "recent"?) adopted Islam as my way of life, much to the consternation of my family. I love to read. I love to write. I am writing a book about my decision to revert, about my spiritual journey. I have another blog about stories from my youth, my parents, and grandparents. It's a blog so my OCD daughter will not be able to throw it out when I die. I suffer from depression and anxiety, for which I am treated, so my posts may be a bit dark at times. C'est la vie.

    I looked for your blog as I was intrigued by the comment you left on BBW. I often wondered myself whether writing about any and all aspects of one’s life is indeed either necessary or even desirable … but then there is another part of me, the writing part, that says – if one claims to be a writer then one mustn’t place limits on one’s writing … no topic is of limit. I think fiction helps … one can always turn out a story!

    This was one of your best posts to date, young lady. Honesty suits you.
