This week’s prompt is bare which means without covering or clothing, or open to view, unconcealed. One of the hardest things for me in pursuing my career as a young adult techno-thriller novelist has been to open up myself to the public. I used to be a painfully, private person. I would go to great extremes to “not” be noticed. Many times, I was mistaken for being a snob or stuck up when I was just trying to protect myself (from what I am not sure.) .
There are still days when I sit down at the computer and have to talk myself into communicating with the public. I pray it will get easier someday. I think about a saying my husband had our kids memorize: “That which we persist in doing gets easier, not because the nature of the thing has changed, but because or power to do has increased.” I pray my nature to share is increasing. May you have the courage to face your fears and persevere to success!
