Follow up: Writer’s Open Mic NightI let my fears run wild here, and then I chatted a little bit about it here. But here’s the general recap of standing in front of an audience and reading something you wrote: it makes you feel very naked and very insecure. Oh, and I should mention that while I was wearing a perfectly acceptable outfit that day, TWO people (one of them my own father) made polite reference to me changing clothes. So you know, that really sent my confidence into overdrive.
Was I nervous? Yep. I felt 100% unqualified and foolish (I think I also mentioned hurling at one point, that was most definitely an option).But I did what anyone in that self-doubting situation would do: I put on my favorite scarf (I swear that thing needs it’s own post one of these days), walked right out the door, and decided to just get it over with, already.The group that assembled was a motley crew…reading all sorts of genres in all kinds of forms. Every age group was represented. All the driving stakes that claim, “these are my stories” were driven into the ground with courage. These writers shared deeply and honestly. It was remarkably moving…over a week later I’m still haunted by a few plot lines and dialogue that were read (note: sign of a very good writer…when I’m thinking about the text long after I put the book down).I read a short nonfiction essay I had written titled ‘Movie’; it has since been published on ThatLitSite.com. In trying new things, we become new people. My writing has a fresh set of eyes and a more determined heart. When everything in your mind rushes to the word NO, sometimes it really is okay to just say ‘yes.’
