I’ve spent hours thinking about the word “shiver.” I usually love the Daily Prompt. It’s not the first thing I think about when I wake up, but it is one of the first things I look for when I log onto my computer in the morning. Today, same as all other days, I did the customary “ctrl + alt + del,” entered my username and password, went to the internet and I anxiously looked for the daily word. The word that usually sends several ideas spiraling through my mind. So many ideas that I have a hard time choosing which direction to go in. But today, I got nothing!
One of my biggest fears is losing my voice, not knowing what to say or write. Just thinking about it makes me shiver. <— see what I did there? 🙂
On a more serious note, I’ve always wanted to share my experiences and stories with others. Maybe I could make them laugh. Maybe they could learn something from what I’ve been through. Maybe, just maybe, I could help solve someone’s problem(s). Or perhaps, someone just might find me entertaining enough that they can lose themselves in one of my stories, forget reality for just a few paragraphs. It just may be the break in their day that they need.
But for me, writing is therapy. A therapy that I don’t want to live without and I’m not going to let one little shiver stop me from doing what I love.
