Being ‘me’ as a writer

The IDEA Bucket

Five months ago, I completed my first novel and decided to bring it out in the world. The process of writing had been difficult enough but what followed was more so. I had to establish myself as a writer which meant I had to be poised and kind towards one of my least favourite acquaintance, “the social media” and also people in real life for whom I had exhibited my vulnerability by bringing out a piece of my ‘world’ into theirs.

For one thing, I find it absolutely frightening to leave my shabby little cave with its creaky doors and rusty hinges (metaphorically speaking) and walk into a room full of potential acquaintances. The effort I have to put to appear at ease with my surrounding generally withers away the energy I might have otherwise channelized towards my writing.
