Update!

I am still editing Nalia and the Potion Maker and I have 3 1/2 chapters left of Nalia and the Rise of the Mares. Things should rap up by the end of summer.

Pain of Rejection Joy of Success.


I was speaking with a writer friend of mine and I finally realized my biggest roadblock in getting my book out there is my deep fear of rejection and failure. She quickly scoffed and said, "Oh you're going to have to get over that real quick!"
    She's was right. I am still not there yet, but I am committed to getting there, because I realize that if I am overcome by my fear of rejection I will never know what it feels like to one day succeed. There is no way around this truth. Every writer must face this.
   It's not easy though, finding your audience. Finding the group that truly understands the words that you have labored over. The words that define you.
    Writing is personal. A good writer gives a piece of themselves in what they write. I am all my characters (even the most treacherous)––and conversely I am also none of them as they are their own.
   As I have stated previously, there can be no doubting your own creative expression. Doubting yourself, gives others permission to doubt you as well.
