I have a running list of fictional stories to try and write.
Charlotte Franklin

As artists, creative beings, we often feel as though our creation is a part of us and therefore we feel vulnerable in connection to sharing it, how it is received and responded to. We are continuously learning and improving in our craft as we journey through life. Yet the further we progress, the more we realize that there is to be learned, making us feel humble towards our own knowledge and abilities.

There is no better time than the present to begin working on anything which sparks your creativity and passion. It will be good enough to share with others. Additionally, the fact that you allow yourself to create in the first place will give you the experience you desire to fuel you forward so that you may reach the goals of bettering yourself. In other words, if you want to be a long distance runner, then you should practice running long distances rather than waiting until you somehow arbitrarily become ready to run your first long distance. There’s nothing saying that you couldn’t rewrite a piece if you decide that you really love the story line, have progressed in your abilities over time and feel as though you can do much better.

I can understand the feelings of wanting to do your ideas justice by being able to back them up with the best quality writing that you know you have the ability within you to produce given time and effort. If you’re at all concerned about being able to come up with more ideas to write later if you use the ones you have saved now, while I can’t guarantee that you wouldn’t experience writer’s block ever, I feel quite certain that the more you write the more you’ll be inspired. The ideas you have saved up now will be like the loose change you have whenever spending cash. If you don’t spend cash, you don’t end up with any loose change. However, if you do use it, you find your pockets full of leftover coins which you can add to your growing collection of change/ideas.

So, to recap:

There’s no better time than the present to share your creative gifts with others.

Any and all creative works are good enough to share.

The more you create, the more you’ll be inspired.

You must create in the first place in order to be able to practice and improve. So you may as well share in an environment you feel comfortable sharing and potentially receive feedback to help you grow.

You may surprise yourself and see that you’re closer to your ideal than you realize. All my best to you!
