Writing is terrifying, isn’t it?
I mean, when you over-think it, as I am inclined to do.
I have a good vocabulary. I know I can do a good job constructing sentences and paragraphs. I have many great places to record my thoughts.
But it’s my internal editor whose objections are the hardest to overcome.
“Everybody has already said that.”
“Everybody is going to hate it if you say that.”
“What if that’s an idea that will become terribly unpopular in three years? Am I going to be allowed to evolve?”
“Is this going to affect my job if my co-workers see this?”
So please forgive the milquetoast as I get over myself. I know these thoughts do not make me unique in any way.
I have deep admiration for those who write and create regularly, revealing themselves and showing vulnerability.
I am grateful to you for lighting the way.
