IWSG: Post Election Thoughts

It's IWSG day. Thanks to Alex Cavanaugh for organizing this monthly event where writers share about their writerly insecurities and other stuff. Today, it's the "other stuff" I'll be sharing about...

Some primary elections around the country took place yesterday. Before sending out my ballot last week, I spent a good chunk of time studying up on candidates and issues. Last night, as the precincts were reporting their votes, I was pleased that voters shared my sentiments in some areas. But voters didn't share my perspective in all areas.

Sometimes the feeling that people don't see what I see or know what I know can be frustrating. 

That's another reason why I write. I want to show people what I see. I want to show them what I know. It's my way of "campaigning" for myself and the things I believe in, even if only a limited number of people will have access to the messages on my "campaign flyers."

Did you vote yesterday? How did it go for you?
