Tomorrow i am facing one of my greatest fears.
I joined a writers group! Yikes
Tomorrow i will sit with a lot of others who are published, who have way more experience than me and who have been writting forever.
They meet once a month and its both frightening and exciting at the same time. I am extremely introvert in new groups of people, i will usually hang on the outside and watch what is happening around me, until i feel comfortable.
My fear is will they like my writting?
Silly thinking really as we each have our own way of expression when it comes to writting.
What happens if they think my writting really SUCKS!!!!
There is the fear creeping in. Deep breath. ( breath breath breath) I am sure thats not going to happen, but breath breath breath.
I have been watching this group for over a year now, fear has been holding me back. I took a chance when they had a discount on their membership. Not that it was expensive, but it was a small opening in my fear and i jumped at the chance.
Keeping it simple and remembering that with out courage, my fear will hold me back. I dont want fear to hold me back any more.
When i was younger i believed in my stepping stones. And this writers group is a new set of stepping stones.
I can only go forward, because i have taken to many steps backwards in my writting. Time to stand still and tall, be focused and breath breath breath.
YOU HAVE GOT THIS FRED. 😉
