“They will arrest you”
“This is not America” or my all time favorite …
“are you not afraid?”
I don’t know if Afraid is the word, but I do get excited and worried. Excited about what lives the article could touch and worried about those that might get offended, but mostly I am excited.
Especially when I write the articles that are inspired by raw anger.
I am anxious initially, but by the time I get it out on paper, I realize that most of the time, my anger was not an isolated thing. That many feel the same way and appreciate the article that I was worried to write. And those angry articles turn out to be my best articles.
So my lesson is this, keep writing … even though you are afraid!
