I have always been really protective of my writing. Well, maybe not always- I was quite a confident little kid and had a reputation as a good writer in elementary and most of middle school. But when I got to eighth grade and was accepted into a tough advanced writing class, I realised that there were people better than me and I kind of shut down and became very secretive about my writing. To this day, there are only a few people to whom I show my writing.

So in Children's Theatre, we were asked to write a two-person scene that, in the course of the action, involves a change one or both of the characters' worldview. I have been working on this scene since at least Friday morning. I finally, finally finished it this morning with the help of my mom (who I have never, ever shown my writing to). I am so relieved it's done, but I don't know how good it is. I've actually shed tears over this scene. It not really because I think my writing is bad, but because I'm feeling the pressure of having it read in front of not only my teacher, but her playwrighting teacher. I hope it's all right...

On another note, Melissa is having a nifty contest on her blog, so check it out!
