“Here, at the end of a long year of writing, I can actually say the words I’ve never been able to say before, though I still†want to run and hide when I say them.
I am a writer.”
It took me 10 years of playing and writing music before I had the courage to say “I am an artist”. And I still want to run and hide when I say it. I don’t think that feeling ever goes away. You just become more tolerant of it 😉
BTW, RLP – it’s not a lot to ask of us readers for you to chill out on the blog. It is so inspiring to know that you have a book coming out soon. Can’t wait to read it.
