In this last instalment of the series of my experiences of NaNoWriMo 2011, I want to share with you my experience of what it means to take the next step and let others into the world you have created. Throughout this series I have covered a broad range of topics and areas that I was inspired by through the frantic experience of getting 50,000 words down in just 30 days. The month of NaNo itself is in many ways a private and isolated journey. As I have mentioned before I took an oath of silence on what I was writing so I could contain that energy. It was only when the month ended that I realised how desperate I was to share my story and experience with others. After containing it for so long I needed to let it out.
Therein lies the danger. And the fear too.
