That’s going to feel like a million bucks.

Oh, how I long for this…
After reading about the results of the Boston Marathon, I HAD to go for a run. Had to.
Time was not on my side. Wells was due to eat lunch and then take a nap. The tires on our jogging stroller were embarrassingly low on air. But TO HELL with excuses.
I strapped my son in, tied up my sneaks, and together, we ran. It felt absolutely fantastic (probably because we only ran 1 mile), like a tiny nod of homage to Meb Keflezighi’s epic accomplishment.
I can’t wait to do it again tomorrow.
Happy Easter, from me to you.

I 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.’
Can’t wait to stomp around in our new sandals 👍
I realllly like these.
