NaPoWriMo #9: Putting It Out There

Leave a comment

Today’s prompt is a challenge to write something we are afraid to write. Here’s my response.

Putting It Out There

What am I afraid to write? you ask.
See, we’re told to write about what we know best
What I know best is me.
That in itself makes me almost not want to pick up a pen,
You need to show courage when you write, we’re told.
The question should really be: are you afraid to write?


Don’t be afraid to write about your deepest anguish,
They say. Or your greatest shame, they urge.
You are free to throw your friends and family
under the bus as long as it makes for a good story.
Yeah, show little backbone and write about yourself.
