I’ve previously regaled anyone reading this blog with my own tale of the first few times I actually spoke the words out loud to somebody who was basically a complete stranger. But when most of my writing life is spent nowadays either knuckled down alone in the writing studio (give or take the odd Australian native wildlife, and an accompanying cat) or on the internet virtually, then it’s an easy thing to get away with. I can just slip back there into my natural introverted cacoon state, and it’s all okey-dokey.
(To be honest, I’m often surprised myself about how easily you guys believe that I am a writer).
Today I took a big step out of the closet, and invested in myself.
