Nervous


Last week I entered into a new position.  I am now The Center Players Playwright in Residence.  The position will give me the opportunity to create new works while reaching out to the community.  I am so excited and quite nervous.   There will be three public readings of my work and I will teach two writing workshops.  I am excited about starting new projects -(do I hear a but coming?) but (there it is) …but I am nervous.  So often when I am speaking with other writers they look at me like I’m somebody.  I mean, I know I’m somebody but (there it is again)…but  I wish I knew how to convey the message that writing isn’t a competitive deal.  Writing, for me, is what I do.  It’s what I love to do.  I’m not trying to be somebody famous.  I’m just trying to do what I love.
