Scared to Death!


I’m so scared right now!  I mean, really scared!  I haven’t shared much of my writing with the outside world.  I have always preferred to just keep it within the walls of my home.  There have been times when I have let a dear friend take a look at something, but this seems different somehow. 

I have attempted to write a book before, but I failed miserably.  Mainly because I let myself get bogged down in what others would think.  I’m no Shakespeare, or Hemingway, but I always wanted to be.  I don’t expect my writing to change the world.  If just one person reads it, and likes it, then it was worth all the time and effort put into it. 

At the moment I am about 20,000 words into a new project.  This is the farthest I have EVER gotten without giving up! So that’s a YAY moment.  And I have let a couple of dear friends take a peak already, and for some odd reason, they have really liked it.  Shocking, I know!

So now I must continue.  My goal is to have this finished by the end of January.  That’s the plan.  Whether or not it’s ready for public consumption...that’s a different story.  But I wanted to make this initial post and at least put myself out there.  Even if it’s only a small part of me going out, it’s still better than hiding in the shadows. 

With that being said, I do believe that 2013 will be the year I make my dreams come true.  I thank everyone who has been here with me, pushing me, encouraging me, and of course making me laugh.  Y’all are my saviors!  So now I must get back to writing.  Must. Write. Next. Chapter.
