YALC is only a week away, and I'm very excited! So I thought I'd talk about it a bit today.
This is probably the most excited I've been ever! Some of my very favourite authors will be there and I'm going to meet some bloggers I've been talking to for a year or more.
It didn't really hit me till I started making plans with people.
No one from my internet life has ever met me before. They may have seen a picture or two, but it's not the same.
I'm very self conscious.
On the Internet, I don't have to hide myself.
My weight. My spots. My voice. My way too opinionated nature. My social awkwardness. The way I dress. The way I will have to do my exercises every once in a while. The way I'll lag behind and my legs will kill with pain from walking.
And the fact that people who mean the absolute world to me will see this?
It scares me.
It scares me a lot.
And it shouldn't, because I know they'll be lovely and helpful and funny.
But it does.
Nothing will really change from writing this, but I thought I would.
