Disbelief...

I did it.

I finally
actually
really
effing
did
it.

I
stood
up there
in front of a mic
in front of other people
in front of other writers
and
I read something
of
my
own.

out loud.

and it was so much fucking harder than i ever thought it would be.

but
I did it

and someday
I might even do it again

(and the best part?
that when I finished reading my first piece
a woman in the audience
called out
"more! more!")

yay! How exciting!

Would it sound weird to say that I am so proud of you?

Weirdly, (because this is my first visit) I am also standing, applauding and encore-ing wildly. I suspect this is because you came out the other side, arms raised and VICTORIOUS and it was bloody hard to do but you did it anyway. You inspired a broad grin. And cheers. And "ENCORE!" And stuff.
