It's the first Wednesday of the month, and if you don't know what that means you need to go here, now. Big awesome thank yous to Alex for creating the Insecure Writer's Support Group and thanks to those helping to keep it going month after month.
It's the first day of May. Secondary Characters comes out this month. Woo hoo! There will be a book out there in the world with my name on the cover. It's cool, and I'm super excited about it. But. . .with it, of course, comes some insecurities.
What if people hate it? Or, what if nobody reads it? What if it's a major flop and I never get another book published ever?
Yes, I know I'm worrying too much. But just because I know that doesn't mean I can turn it off.
But I don't want to focus on the negative. For the most part I'm just happy. These worries pop up, yes, but I'm sure they do for most people. It's a vicious cycle, isn't it? You worry you'll never get published, then when you do, you worry it won't be any good. If it is good, you worry the next one won't be as good and so on and so forth forever. I guess that's why we have the support group! :)
So I will do my best to ignore the worries and focus on the exciting wonderful parts. :)
Happy Wednesday everyone!
