Shelf life

I've become lost in my own fear of failure. I cannot take a pen to paper; cannot draw the simplest sunset for fear of ruining the perfect whiteness of the page with my pathetic attempt at beauty. I sit, stagnant, waiting for an idea that will not mock me with its mediocrity.
And sitting does not suit me.

Author's age when written


Don't know how you did it within the span of this essay, but it completely gave me the feeling of what you were describing. Seriously, so perfectly done. Glad you posted!

I just love your posts...

This, though so short, is fantastic. It just completely is so good at what you're describing, and I relate quite a lot.
And I just love the way you write. It's so forward. Keep posting, please!

Wow. This was so short, I didn't expect anyone to like it this much! Thanks for all the enthusiasm, guys!
