Here's the thing I'm most insecure about right now (and have been for some time, and will be for some more time to come!): putting my writing out there for the world to see.
A few months ago, I decided to publish a series of stories entitled Creepy Hollow, and those of you who hang around this blog sometime may have seen my announcement in December. Now, I'm enjoying writing these stories, I think they're kind of fun, and I'm really excited for the release of the first one in a few months' time. BUT, in those moments when excitement subsides, I can find many things to be afraid of.
Here is what haunts me in my darkest moments (okay, so it's not that bad, but you know what I mean!):
- No one will buy my book.
- People will buy it, but they'll think it's kind of crap.
- People will buy it, they'll enjoy it, but not enough to be interested in reading any more of my work.
Aaarruuuargh! <--- that's me wrestling with the insecurity demon ---> Down, you demon, down!
So. How have I gotten over these insecurities?
