While it was scary to post the link to Better Than Everything on Facebook and Twitter, when all was said and done, no one freaked out about it.
A co-worker was a bit shocked after reading it and admitted that she looks at me differently now, but beyond that...crickets.
Now, there could be two reasons for this.
One: the story just didn't rub people the wrong way.
Or two: no one read it.
On my days of uncertainty, I'm certain of two.
But on my days of certainty, I know I must write about the unfamiliar, the uncomfortable and the unjust because that's when I push myself. That's when my writing is at its best.
And that's when scary is good.
What do you write that scares you?
