That is how I feel about sharing my creative work with the world. Sharing my academic writing gives me similar fears, but it is much safer and less vulnerable, so the feeling is not as intense. However, I am so scared to show my creative writing to my classmates, much less read the short story I composed out loud for all to hear. I know that is a vital part of my Creative Writing class, but it is still very difficult for me. To try to soothe my fears, I had two of my close friends read over my work and I still couldn’t bring myself to stay in the same room as they read it. It is a tough phobia to get over, but I know I will have to face it this semester. Hopefully I conquer it.

I'm the girl that's named after the famous city of lights and cameras, but am too shy to talk to the kid sitting next to me in class. I'm the girl that blasts opera while I commute to and from school, but is in the crowds of rock shows on Friday nights. I'm the girl who can't draw to save her life, but takes beautiful pictures. I'm the girl who worries about everything, even when things aren't so bad. I can't be put in a box, so you want to know more? Read my work.

  1. It is a supportive group and writing groups are supposed to be a safe place to share your work. Thanks for sharing!

    This was actually written before I shared, but I’m glad I pushed myself that day!
