Heh heh, fooled you!

A is for ANXIETY.

What else could it be in a blog that’s devoted to writing and social anxiety?

I’m repeating this, for anyone who hasn’t read it before:

Social anxiety (SA) is a fear of people and especially of what those people think of the sufferer. I’ve seen SA defined as extreme shyness. While this is probably true for most sufferers, it doesn’t apply to everyone.

The origin of SA is a mixture of nature and nurture. Two people can go through the same experiences and only one will get it. Two people can start off with the same characteristics and only one will get it.

I’ll write more about social anxiety during this A to Z month. Do come back and read about that and other things.
