Opening Myself Up

So, I went to the Glimmer Train group last night, and I felt so out of place. I felt like a scribbler in a roomful of serious people. I know that I'm capable of good writing, but it's tough when everyone else is writing things that are not just serious but introspective and surprising and hypnotic and what you've done is just...silly.

But the world NEEDS silly! I couldn't write something that funny no matter how hard I tried. In writing, as in theater/tv/movies, comedy is harder than drama. Honestly. And if all anyone every wrote were things overwrought and serious, how dreary would the world be?
