Having recently participated in the A-Z Challenge, I realized how much I enjoyed the challenge of writing everyday. This prompted me to look into a local writing group and last night I went to a writers group for the first time!
It was a small group that meets at the library once a month. I enjoyed it very much and look forward to continuing on. I have absolutely no formal training as a "writer" but have been considering writing my story for quite some time. I had been thinking about a memoir, which was exactly what the group suggested.
Last night was a huge step for me. Although I teach and coach people everyday I have had a lot of trouble with new environments and meeting new people over these past 4 years. Dealing with more stress than one should has a funny way of knocking you off balance. You get back up again and brace for the next hit while praying that it will not come.This tends to shake a persons confidence. Even in the simplest of situations.
So, last night was really stepping out for me.Even one year ago I would not have been able to walk into that situation with any level of confidence.It feels good to be moving forward, even if it is just a little step.
Do you have a favorite blog post or story you may have read through the A-Z challenge or just on the blog? Would love your feedback!
