Um......hi

Over the past year, I defeated a fear of other people, learned the value of clarity and brevity, fought writer's block, and developed pride in my words.

Now I am a writer with a love for onomatopoeias and an affinity for semicolons.

FREE WRITING

I played all the right notes

I followed every criticism

Surrendering my passion

My pride

My peace

At the suggestion of those who knew better

Because it's smart to play what your audience wants to hear

I put on the face and I wore it proud

And even though I hated it

I hate it

I did it

Damnit, I did it

And gave everyone the show that they asked for

So why, when I stood up and bowed, did nobody clap for me?
