I'm already terrified. The first meeting is Monday, and it isn't even a proper meeting, just a meet and greet type thing. It's not like I'll have to bring work or ideas or read anything out, not in this first gathering. Still terrified. But I have to go for it. I have to.
I need to find some self confidence and I need to have more of a social life. For some reason I wasn't included on the Moodle page for the Creative Writing department site, only the Media department site (stupid university), and so I feel a bit estranged from the goings on in the Roehampton "writing community", as it were. But I know a couple of the people in the Writing Society already. I don't know them well but I checked out the Facebook page and I've spoken to a few of the members in different modules. I'll find somebody I can talk to. And so really, there is no reason not to go. I need to take a leap over the chasm of nerves and do this for myself.
