Deep Dark Public Secrets

As someone writing 3 very different rough drafts in a public forum (twytte), I couldn’t help but laugh (in a good way) when I read Kharis Courtney’s “Writing Scared” article, featuring an Erica Jong quote: “All writing problems are psychological problems. Blocks usually stem from the fear of being judged. If you imagine the world listening, you’ll never write a line. That’s why privacy is so important. You should write first drafts as if they will never be shown to anyone.”

Oops.

The best part is that one of these three rough drafts is a horror novel about something I don’t know much about (yet), which is the Kharis Courtney’s prompt for today in that same article. Spooky, right?
