Writing Through My Fear

I struggle with letting myself be seen.

I don’t like being seen.

But words are a roadmap to the human heart. It is easy to see a person’s intent on the page. You can tell with only a few sentences where a person is coming from. Sometimes this terrifies me. But it also inspires me. I am moved by my fellow writers who seem to put it all out there with no stone unturned.
