Hello again!! Here’s my face. Lol.
I’ll properly introduce myself. Hi, I’m Tilly.
I don’t typically share my face, at least not very often. I prefer it that way. When I began writing and sharing on Instagram I didn’t feel comfortable putting my face out there. There’s a lot of creeps and I just wanted my work to stand on its own. So I created my infamous avatar. Which looks just like me. It became the face of Tilly.
I’ll never remove the avatar. It is who I am. It’s what I’m known for. It’s how people know it’s me. But I understand how having a real face to connect to can help readers. So I’ll share my face from time to time.
To be completely honest, I was scared to share my face. When I began sharing my poetry on Instagram it was a lot of bleeding out my trauma. Because of the nature of my writing and where I live, I was worried my abuser would find my account if it was attached to my face. So anonymously posting was better for me. Which leads me to reveal that my real name is not Tilly. It’s a pen name. My real name won’t be shared though. A little mystery is good for ya. 😉
I hope you enjoyed this little snippet. And seeing my face.
