Fear of Writing

I usually have no patience with going back in time and fantasising about what I should have done differently. I rarely read pieces where people write advice to their younger selves.

Today I want to give my younger self one permission. Me in my 20s.

Write. Write everyday. Express yourself.

All kinds of stuff has come right up to my throat…and I won’t start typing.

I want to tell 20 year old me to write freely all the time, so that the me who is now 40 isn’t SO SCARED OF WRITING anymore!!

I’m also putting fear out here in the open…so that it discovers what a lovely world there is out here and slinks away.

Fear, go away. Don’t be silly. You are grown up now. Go travel.
