To spark my week's creativity, I joined this group hop! The key is to link with other creative blogs and get inspired/ inspire others. I love that!
I have a hard time talking about my writing with the people in my life; it feels like I'm a big pretender, or a wannabe.
But, the truth is that I love to write. So, here I am admitting it.
Hi. My name is Laura, and I am a writer.
I just recently told my family about my current WIP. It felt so odd sharing something that for me is so intimate. It was like I was stripping myself for them to see.
I guess I expected to be laughed at, because it is such a pipe dream to want to be a writer.
Nobody laughed at me. At least not out loud.
It really feels good to put it out there, and to be able to talk about it when things are going well. It's still really hard, but I'm working on it.
So... my contribution to the weekend creation is my story of admitting that I like to create. I have had occasions where people have looked at me like I was joking when I said I like to write, but it's not been everyone. And I have my family's support, which is all that really matters.
