Fear Of Writing, Fear Of Rejection     by    Ruth Utnage

I really want to work on documenting my theory on prison culture. I don’t know what holds me back, insecurity maybe? The fear of writing something I am so passionate about and either not knowing what to do with it or it and/or me being flat out rejected. I feel it in my being that I am in the right field of study and this is what I want to get done but whenever I sit down to fully document things I begin to think I am not as academically prepared to write what I want. I am not sure how to get beyond that mind state but to simply do it.

So that’s what I am going to do. Write it. Ask for help editing it from a friend or two and then reach out to people outside of here to help additionally edit and publish. I don’t know if it’s going to work, I might fail. It may be rejected or I may be rejected. I am going to do it anyway.

With Love
