Lola Rennt

The time to hesitate is through

So I'm finally doing it.
 
I'm terrified and excited all at the same time: I'm taking my first official writing class tomorrow at the Writer's Center.  
 
No more excuses.  I'm going strap on my running shoes and chase this dream.  And if I fall, I will get up.  And if I scrape my knee, I will not cry.  And if I fail, well, it won't be the first time.
 
Writing is something that I enjoy the most.  And also fear the most.  So I guess it's time to find out if it's sink or swim for me.  That way I can't hide behind the "well, I could have been good if only I had done it".  I guess I'll just do it, and if it doesn't work, then I'll stash away these dreams for good.  Thankfully, I have no complaints about my day job either.

And after all, this is just a class.  A small tiny baby step.  But so very much in the right direction.  

(Breathe.)
