22 August 2012. Went to a live reading series to hear one author, left the biggest fan of another unknown to me, @ArynKyle.
Five readings, four comedic-ish themes. Reading Number Two, an entirely different approach — one of the most naked, courageous, speaks-to-everyone on some level words I’ve not even read off of a page in a VERY long time, let alone straight out of the mouth of an individual… reading in front of a stunned silent room full of strangers, potential judgers. http://www.howilearnedseries.com/2012/08/straight-shooters.html
Timely reminder for me that you must trust that people connect with the truth, and continue to overcome the persistent urge to edit yourself.
"That is part of the beauty of literature. You discover that your longings are universal longings, that you’re not lonely and isolated from anyone. You belong." ~ F. Scott Fitzgerald
