Let me state that I just started writing about 7 months ago. I've been doing graffiti since about mid-05, but all I did were sketches (And oh how horrible they were), but that was it. I actually started doing real shit like handstyles and what not about Sept. of last year. Now I'm starting to take my shit to the streets, but I have a huge problem with being straight up paranoid. I live in the Baltimore suburbs, writers like CASPA, BAAL, DEAK and some others have been though where I live. Every time I go bomb, I just have get a horrible feeling of paranoia, like during the first seconds that I even pressure the tip of my can, somebody has already called the cops and are hot on the way. Same thing goes for writing on shit. About two weeks ago I got caught hitting up a sign by a cop. Like as soon as I got done, he rolled up on me. But Bacon-Boy made me wipe it off before he even got a chance to read it. This kinda upped my feelings.
I'm not quitting or any stupid shit like that, I'm still gonna fucking write until the day I die. But I really wanna get over this shit. Sometimes I take my chances and I write in a barely-populated area, but most other times I just don't because I get paranoid.
I know I'm gonna get grilled for this topic, and I'm willing to sit through that. Has anybody here ever felt like this? If so, how'd you overcome it?
