“Apples.” That is all I can think of, apples? So he proceeds to tell me all the “good and bad” characteristics of apples.
Why do I make this so painfully difficult? For months now I’ve thought of nothing, but writing. I look over past blogs and think about how good, no, great they are. So surely I can write a topic piece for a weekly contest, right? But someone other than me and my handful of encouraging friends will be judging this expression of my writing abilities.
“What if…” There are so many “what ifs”. What if it is a meager attempt at writing? What if it’s bad, no, shamefully bad? What if noone likes it? What if even one person gives me the harshest critique? Can I handle that, or would I lose all that wind in my sail? “What if…”
So here it is. This is actually the third time I’ve written a piece for the weekly contest. Only, the others never actually made it to submission. It’s raw and on the level of amateur, but if I never step out there how will I know? How will I know if my writing is good or bad or verging on the edge of something else?
