It works!

23 10 2012

Today, we workshopped my second-person creative non-fiction piece in class.  I was excited yet a bit unsure because, as I noted in my last post about my project, stuff written in the second-person can be tricky to pull off successfully.  Instinctively, I knew what I wrote worked, but in my rational, I’m-not-a-good-writer mind, I had doubts.  So when the first comments from everyone today were all positive, that it was a powerful, “awesome” (I got a lot of those) piece, I gave a sigh (which made a few people look at me strangely).  But it was a sigh of relief!  Oh, how good validation feels, when people appreciate your work.  I haven’t felt that in a while.

Needless to say, after workshopping my piece, I was motivated to edit and re-write after the meaningful feedback, which is always the goal of a good workshopping session.  I guess after getting everyone’s comments, I had the thought that I might actually be able to make it as a writer after all.

But we shall see (that’s my I’m-not-a-good-writer mind speaking).
