Telling Him (Guest Post on Reading & Writing Urban Fantasy)

Telling Him
by Hanna Peach
I’ve heard that the thing that people fear most is public speaking. For me… the communication is more intimate. It’s telling someone, that one person, how I really feel about them. This terrifies me more than death. And apparently, it terrifies me more than dying alone because I still haven’t been able to do it.
Why not? What’s so terrifying? It’s just my feelings. It’s just my soul bared, naked, exposed to the one person who has the most power to crush it… haha
Anyway, so I’m a writer, I have this issue. What do I do about it? I write it into one of my characters, of course. Let them blunder through it, mess things up, tear things apart with it, then work through it…
