Feel the Fear & Do It Anyway.

fear, failure, fortune cookie

This scares me!

Normally I like to take my time to write something. Properly mull it over. Take a break. Revisit and rejig.

And now I’m being (gently) pushed to stretch my comfort zone. Just write. And publish.

No deleting allowed. Just committing to paper my thoughts right now, and then sharing them with the world via elephant journal.

But all I can think of is how much this scares me. How I need time and comfort to craft my words more carefully.

Ten minutes to write, edit, find an image and publish. Holy Sh*t!

Ok, it won’t win any Pulitzers, but here goes. Hitting “Publish”.
