Why I'm Doing This

Ever since I was a little tyke I've been writing. Back in 3rd grade, Mrs. Waltson said we could do a creative writing story and I went to town...8 pages long and filled with all the dramatics that a 8 year old could come up with.

Now, I've been writing ever since. I love to do it but I hate having people read what I write. The idea of someone accidentally happening upon my stories scare me to death. I don't know why. Maybe they'll hate it. Maybe they'll like it. Maybe they'll think its too silly or cliche.

But this is my project. I'm writing the novel I've had in my head for years. I'm forcing myself to write it, 500 words a day, everyday. I'm going to post those words each day so y'all can read it. I'm not going to edit it or overthink it. I just want to get my words out there.
