In Share Your Writing and Who Knows What Will Happen, poet and editor Robert Brewer describes how conquering his fear of sharing his writing helped him to find the love of his life.
His story serves as a great reminder that you never know who might identify with what you have to say.
Whether your writing is personal or not, don’t let self-critical thoughts or fear of judgment stop you from expressing what you want to share with the world. Be proud of your writing, and take advantage of the opportunity to connect with like-minded individuals who appreciate your work.
Here’s an excerpt from the post:
So love led me to writing, and writing led me to love. But none of it would’ve been possible if I just kept it all bottled up or hidden away. As writers (even when we don’t know we’re writers), our main job is to write, but it’s also to share.
Robert’s story was featured in the third installment of Get Inspired Mondays, a guest blogger series published on Amanda’s Wrinkled Pages.
