    Great closing that sums up why I’m a writer, too:

    “As scary as a blank page is to me, I find that blank stares from a real person to be far more horrifying a prospect to deal with.”

    This entry is as hilarious to me as it is true to my own life. Some days, it makes all the sense in the world why so many writers of the classics were drunk or on drugs most of their careers. Since I don’t want to suicide-by-writing-career, I just have to live with the social anxiety and watch people’s shoes more than make eye contact.

    Then again, maybe this allows me to watch the world well enough to write more believable prose. It’s a fiction, I’m sure, but it’s one I think I’ll keep believing.

    Great entry worth rereading. Kudos!
