Journal TheLazySci-FiAuthor's Journal: Creative Sharing

I talked with a friend and coworker today about their writing. They write many poems and songs, and in fact have a constant, overwhelming urge to create.

I urged them strongly to publish (post) their material - they have no blog or public outlet, everything is on notepads.

Throwing aside all their objections and fears, I felt myself become strangely fervent about their sharing. As I think of myself to be a pretty moderate, unexcited individual, this sudden near-fanaticism really surprised me.

Still, I remain steadfast in my belief that the sharing of knowledge and creations is good, but I must do something to temper the irrational emotions that have now become tied to this notion.
