What am I doing here?

Welcome to my experiment with failure and openness. Historically, I have very little experience with either of those things, partially because I kept myself away from any possibility of coming into contact with them. Frankly, the results haven’t been overwhelmingly positive.

This is my take two. I have never published my creative work because I’m terrified of these two things: failure, and openness. I am an emotional fortress. On this blog I want to overcome those two things together by sharing things that I have written, of which many are deeply personal (any many are not), and by documenting the process as I buckle the fuck up and submit those babies to fancy publications whose names I’m not sure I can pronounce. It’s going to be painful to watch, I promise. Also awkward. Have fun!
