I'll start the discussion!
I used to love writing since I was a child (I wrote children's tales, mostly with talking animals and the stuff) and really wanted to become a writer. I wrote cringey yaoi fanfics as well as self-inserts (cringe) and some more mature short stories. Also, I did role-playing at forums and so, which helped me improve. However I stopped writing after a huge writers' block and feeling that everything I wrote was pure shit.
I want to shake off both the block and the insecurities by tackling NaNoWriMo after years of no writing. It will probably result in utter shit, to be honest, but I want to overcome that fear and shame of showing other people my writing.
