    I'm Protective of My Words

    I don't show many people at all what I write, or wrote in the past. I'm so protective of it. I don't want anyone to criticize it, because when I write, I empty myself out onto that page, and if it gets critcized, it feels like someone's attacking me. Rarely, someone can convince...

    Began Slowly

    At first I was hesitant to let parts of my thoughts and feelings out. I didn't know how they would be seen or accepted. In life, off EP, at times over the years when I let my true self show I received, well mixed reactions. So, yea it was hard at first. Then as I wrote more it...

    And They Really Want to See

    I just had a giant English project last semester, where I had to amass a large amount of my writing.  A lot of it was rather personal, the personal pieces consisting of a few poems and a short story.  My teacher adored them, and wanted to submit them to the school...

    Well, Maybe Not 'scared' Exactly....

    In 9th grade I wrote my first poem for a girl. I proudly handed it to her at school the next day as a romantic gesture. As she read it, she first began to snicker...then laugh...then laugh harder. By the end she was sitting on the hallway floor agaist the lockers laughing...

    So Was I/am I

    I still am a little off about showing others my writing.... It is very personal and very introspective... its hard to give others especially strangers a door into your soul like that!

    Still Am, Probably Will Always Be

    I've shared my writing with only a few rare people. EP, to me, is one of the most sacred places I feel I've shared it. A lot of the places and people I've shared it with seem so out of range or unappreciative of what I'm exposing. Yes, they tell me it's good, that I've...

    Scarred And Scared

    Some people saw a song I was writing. It was dumb to write it at lunch but did they need to shout it out to my advisory? Did my advisory need to laugh at it? Did they need to put me in a void of fear? This is the only place I share my writing. Its the only place I feel safe to.
