Facing My Fears- With Tiramisu
It's a dreary, blustery day in Alaska. I'm worried summer might pass us by this year.
So what did I do today for the sheer pleasure of brightening my day? I made tiramisu from scratch. I haven't had any yet- it's still chilling in the fridge, but I tasted the frosting and it's pretty much nirvana.
I'll admit though- I was intimidated by this recipe. It was 2 full pages in my Williams-Sonoma book and uses 10 eggs. I love to bake, but I've put off tiramisu for a long time now because I wasn't sure it would turn out.
What the heck? That's no way to live! We can really only live if we manage to face our fears. I have a number of writing-related fears I'm facing up to as well. So I have a challenge for you today.
Try something new.
I don't care what it is. Change a tire by yourself, bake a cake, or do something scary in your writer-life. You never know, you just might surprise yourself.
What will you do today?
