one more week

For some of us who have realized (or stumbled upon?) the path of writing is something to be of great significance, there will come a time that this simple want or need to prove it has to be skinned down to its bare muscles, then to its bare bones, to see if it is all worth it.

That day was May 5.

After the skinning comes the roasting. The coals have been prepared and stoked. Now, we have one more week, and our muses will never be the same again. Good or bad, the various critiques would not only shape our future words but also guide our pens that we hold on to continue writing if that writerly itch persists. Or even if that itch begins to fade.

Reminds me of how intimidated I was the first time I entered the Masters.

Yeah... Scary. But you'll get the hang of it soon. It's just a matter of accepting your ignorance.
