I wrote a very personal article today. I don't know why, but Associated Content targeted me with an assignment titled "I don't believe in God because..." and I accepted it right away.

Before I knew it, I was deep inside an article about a topic so close to me that even most of my friends and family aren't aware of it. I'm not going to repeat the whole article here, but it made me wonder again about fear and writing. If people I know see what I've written, they'll see that I'm an atheist now. And what will they think of me?

I hope this doesn't come back and bite me in the future, but for now I'm glad I wrote that article. It's true to who I am and who I want to be, and I think that's the bottom line.
