Yup. That took no time at all
Literally 20 minutes ago I posted my first actual story. I haven’t tweeted the link, or shared it with anyone. It’s some kind of weird social anxiety. Which is funny, because I don’t have to be around anyone when they read it. But it’s getting posted on social media. It’s a very confusing situation.
I’ve never been more terrified to press a cute little blue button that says “tweet” ever in my whole life. And lets be honest, I’ve tweeted some stuff!
I’m really excited about doing this. I think I’m going to have a lot of fun with it and it’s going to be a great practice of getting inner ideas and creativity out and on “paper”. Lord knows I really do need that. With everything I’ve got crammed up there, this is going to be a great exercise in getting all that fun stuff out to make room for other new fun stuff.
Forcing the issue
My solution to the terror of pressing that button is linking my posts here to my twitter account so that I will cut out the middle man and make the social magic happen without my direct knowledge. Of course, I know when I press “publish” here, that presses the scary blue button in internet land for me, but I’d rather not think about that.
This is where you come in
Has there ever been anything that you’ve wanted to do, that for whatever reason you’ve been too scared to do? For me, I’m not sure this whole writing blogging thing is going to be something I’m good at. So in my head I wonder why should I bother. Certainly no one is going to want to read the rants and babbles of a guy in Dallas. What are those things for you? What both scares and terrifies you more than anything? The best thing you can do for yourself is try and fail. The worst thing being the other side of that coin and wanting to try something and never doing it. Who knows, you could be the best at that thing, and you may never know till you step out and give it a go.
