I haven’t written anything for quite a while. It’s been years, actually. I let my inner critic and the judgement of others get the best of me. One thing led to another and I just quit, telling myself this path–writing books and publishing them for others to read–wasn’t for me. I allowed myself to believe I didn’t have a thick enough skin, and worse, that I wasn’t that good at it.
But the writing bug never left me and a few weeks ago, despite the aforementioned setbacks, I decided to give it one more shot. Why? Because I never stopped thinking about they way hours pass like minutes when I’m deep in the “writing zone”, living the lives of the characters that I dream up and writing their experiences.
I remembered that writing is FUN!!!
It may be a while before I publish anything. And I may use a pen name moving forward if or when I do.
But, you guys, I AM writing.
