writing group

there are such talented people in my writing group, sometimes i just want to sit and listen. Tonight a couple of people had written beautiful pieces where i had written shallow drivel which i was ashamed to read. I love writing and sometimes I write things I'm proud of but mostly I write to relax and as therapy, I know I'll never be truly talented and that's ok.

I'm never happy with what I write. I am always in awe of the others on Helium. It's natural to think that your work is inferior to others. Same as photos! Everyone hates seeing themselves in pictures, when in fact you never actually look as bad as you think you do! God, you are a handsome devil Toadee!

I am never brave enough to share anything creative with people ... I'm paranoid and lack self-confidence. It's quite draining. I wish I could find a trustworthy writer's group, but in order to trust you have to spend time and I don't have time right now. It's a dilemna.

PS: For what it's worth -- I like you're writing. It makes me chuckle.
