It’s one of my writing goals to try to update this here blog at least twice a week. I prefer to post at least every other day but this week I don’t think that is going to happen.
Yes, I know, I should write no matter what but just this week I have a bigger priority. My baby boy is having his Naming Ceremony tomorrow. I have written and planned this ceremony as much as is humanly possible. Now, I simply have to show up and get it done. Oh yeah and speak publicly in front of my closest family and friends. Did I mention I dislike public speaking? No? Well, I do. A lot! I freeze and stutter. It’s a freaking nightmare.
However, I feel remarkably calm this time. I think that all this writing practice in a strange way has led to an improved ability with public speaking. Owning the name ‘Writer’ in public took guts. I have owned it. Now, I’m gonna own ‘Speaker’.
What fears has becoming a writer helped you with?
Oh and I will be out of circulation for the weekend, so have a good one!
