On Writing

Today I wrote a short story/flash fiction kinda deal. It felt nice. I like being able to write again, and now that I've started, it's very hard to stop.

Something that's always been a stumbling block for me is feeling something like stage fright, while also being terrified that no one will come watch the show I'm putting on. "What if no one comes?" I think. "Or what if they do?!" It's stifling.

But I have a solution. I write to someone, the way I'd sing to a friend in the audience, even if I'm perfoming for an entire stadium. I never thought about it until now, and now that I have, my words are back, and I can write again.
