I never thought I would want to try Creativity Counselling - it's not really 'done' in Britain. In fact, counselling of any kind isn't really something British people admit to readily. It's been hard to admit that I needed help to change step with writing. Writing is my haven from the world. Writing should be inviolate. I used to have to scratch together a few moments' peace for creativity but then, I learnt how to set aside that time. I'm in a place where I've thrown myself into writing over the last two years. I've produced the lion's share of a novel, some poetry and some short stories. They are in my desk drawer right now as I blog, and that is the problem. They never go anywhere else. I don't want to stop writing entirely but I'd like to submit them somewhere - yet I cannot. I am always writing, and I'm scared now that I'll lose it if I stop.
I am scared of changing step and feel a bit lost about where to begin. I feel a bit daunted by it all, and about how to protect my creative self whilst I move forward in this new way.
