EleanorT13 karma

As a writer who writes a lot about very real and perhaps 'unflattering' moments in your own life, how do you get over the "oh God, if I write this, everyone will know that I did a bad thing" fear? Not so much with your audience, who presumably are supportive or they wouldn't read, but in your day-to-day life- kids' teachers, bosses at the day job, etc.? I feel panicked at the thought and I think it's holding back the good stuff, word-wise.
