F* It!

There are days when I allow myself to wallow in fear about the validity of my creative self. I question whether all the time I spend creating characters, describing places, and manufacturing scenarios is even worth my while.  I worry that what I put out there may not be deserving of the eyes that fall upon it.

So I keep quiet.

Then there are days, like today, when I just say, "F* It!"   I found this on Facebook today, and realized that while I fear losing face about my possibly inane and idiotic pursuits, there is more at stake if I deny myself the chance to even try.


May you find the courage to live your dream and wear your passion.  Life is too short.

  4. I understand that feeling. I often give myself a hard time about why I keep writing. I can't possibly be good enough. No one is going to want to read it, etc etc. I think it comes with the territory of writing and if we stop worrying our work will pay because we stop caring.

    Love the picture.

  5. @Rebecca, that's exactly how I feel sometimes. I'm learning to climb up from those nasty depths. Thanks.
