Tightrope walking is easy compared to showing your writing to others, to sharing your thoughts and emotions and dreams with people who might laugh at you or scorn you or worse, simply couldn’t care less.
Nobody laughs at tightrope walkers. Nobody scorns them. Everyone looks at them when they perform. People even cry for them when they fall.
But when it comes to writers, alas…
It takes a lot of courage to write, to blog, to dream on paper, or on the computer screen.
Writers are braver than tightrope walkers.
