It's easier said than done to engage in difficult topics or conversations. The idea of vulnerability is often more frightening than the appeal of the potential reward that follows. Whether you're sharing your soul via your screenplay, putting yourself out there to build your audience or confronting emotions through any sort of creativity, you'll find that it's not easy but it's definitely worth it!
