Not only do most people think that it takes tons of time and money, but most people will secretly admit that they fear being judgedbeing exposed, or simply the change that being an author would bring.
Maybe it will work for you, too. Start by having a minor midlife crisis when you realize that your next birthday will put you closer to 40 than Weep a little bit, softly or ragingly, in the corner or in the car, on your way to the grocery store, in the bathtub, at night in bed, really anytime in bedwhile watching Harry Potter with your kids, while taking a walk wear sunglasses so no one knows.
Drink a little too much, or not. That part is up to you. Overeat carbs until you feel not only emotionally freaked out but physically ill. It all starts here, in this pit of despair induced by the predictable and unstoppable process of aging, the arbitrary and unrealistic cultural expectations we accept unflinchingly, and the self-induced sunlight deprivation brought on by your choice to hide inside with your pizza and your last bottle of vodka rather than go out into the harsh, truth-telling sunlight of a humid July.

Shallow because, while those events strike fear in us, they are actually wake-up calls. So here you are, with me, in the pit of despair, thinking of puns and deciding that maybe we will just live here.
In the pit, the deeper fear speaks. The fear of waste. From being afraid of trying something and failing to being desperately, clearly horrified at the idea of not trying something that your whole being is telling you to try.
You feel the deeper fear, the fear of what your own fears could do to you: You have done the things you thought were necessary and right and still, you are lying there, in the pit, and nothing is safe, after all.
