A Brazen Act of Writing
I have great faith in fools; self-confidence my friends call it.
Edgar Allan Poe
Any kind of performance in the arts – sculpting, writing, acting, painting – all require an element of self-confidence. Every time we put something out there, we are showing the world our psychological underwear. The unmentionables show and you have two choices – you either run away in embarrassment or brazen it out as a fashion statement.
Writing is a brazen act of confidence.
We write from our id and ego. Sharing pieces of ourselves that might never come to the light of day. Outwardly, we seem ‘normal’, contained, or quiet. On the inside we are kings and queens of our domains.
Be brazen and confident in what you do. If mistakes happen? Correct them and move on. Tell the stories that are thronging in your head.
Enjoy the journey and let your psychological underwear fly!
