E.M.’s Random Word Prompt #10

E.M.’s Random Word Prompt #10


I would class myself as an introvert.

My play will be advertised in a couple of months, and there will be a meet and greet when it airs for the first time. I don’t really like being in front of the crowd, but rather the person behind the words. I can write a novel, play, or even a poem, but I can’t say a few words to another person without stuttering.

I’m excited, and I should be, but scared too.

I’m overly shy, but that is because of being bullied as a child. I still don’t like confrontation of any kind. Not that being proud of my achievement is a bad thing. It’s just I’m not used to shouting my praises.

It is like I am the person behind the camera, not the person acting in front of it.

I’ve always wanted to write, from when I was a little girl and read my first book. I knew it would give the kind of escapism to stop the bullies words meaning anything.

I want to do that for other people; let them read my words and understand how powerful they can be. That’s what we do as writers – create a world where the reader can follow the life of someone they can get to know.

So, just like an actress, I will face the public, and answer their questions, because I should be proud. Introvert or not, there are some days when self doubt should be thrown to the wind.

I am a fifty something mother of two grown up children, and one beautiful grandchild. I have been married for nearly thirty-four years. My first book was published ten years ago. I wrote my book Sticks and Stones because of my experience of being bullied at school.
