Ain’t it the truth! Probably why writers are among the few professions who blossom in middle to late stage of life. Before then, it’s just too scary getting into heads and hearts.
“The writer who flinches at exposure, who dares not show the depths of his fears and loves or show what truly matters above all else to him as a real person, will fail to capture any reader’s head or heart.”
-Julia Czerneda – Introduction to Douglas Smith’s Chimerascope
