I was talking to my sister today, who also writes, and told her that while I write because < excited jumping-up-and-down lil kid > "I have this neat story to tell!", I don't think I could ever post my writing, at least not original characters, anywhere because I have this weird feeling that it'll no longer be mine. It kinda feels like I'll never be able to go back and read it, or the characters will be gone in my head once I let others read it. Like I'm giving it away. I'm not talking about people taking my ideas or plagiarism. I mean once someone Out There has read it, it's now gone from me, the people and the events aren't mine anymore. I don't want to give my writing/stories/characters away. Again, not talking about publishing--I have no interest in publishing. I just write for my own fun. I mean somehow it'll all be over when other people read it. Am I just a lone weird dork? I would love other people to read my writing, but I don't want other people to read it because ....it'll be gone then. Should I go see a shrink?
