"publish"

It's that little orange button that sits at the top of the page while I write.

It's one ominous word.

Publish.

One click takes my words from being private and personal to being accessible to anyone.  To everyone. To the world.

It's this button that has kept so many half-written posts from ever being completed.  It seems that the more I write and the older I get, the more I realize how much I don't know.  Or I realize that someone else has already said what I'm thinking and done it with much more eloquence.

A few weeks ago I was discussing this with someone and, when she mentioned this feeling, I urged to her simply do it.  Click the button.  Publish.  But then I admitted that I hadn't been writing for the same reason.

So today I'm doing it.  I'm pressing the button.

I may not having anything profound to say.  I may not say it perfectly.  But I'm not going to let my overanalyzing paralyze my writing tonight.

For the next two weeks I'm going to try to write something (anything!) each day just to get myself writing and overcome my hesitance.  We'll see if I actually make it!
