FEARLESS FRIDAYS – Becky Wallace faces a first draft

Standard

We all have fears. Some are logical:

It’s venomous! Be afraid!

I mean honestly. These things are nasty.

That is a thing of nightmares.

 

And some are slightly less logical:

The holes! Ugh. They totally make my skin crawl!

But there is one fear that every writer faces: the fear of their old, crappy drafts.

Today I’m pulling out the very first draft of my very first book, and let me warn you, those first couple of paragraphs are painful!  It was a paranormal (as was the thing to write four years ago) about a boy who could see the future, but got really sick when he tried to do it.

Speaking of sick, don’t mind the sniffles in this vlog I’m battling one of those deadline-and-debut colds, so my voice is more terrifying than usual!

Come back and visit us next week on Fearless Fridays when the lovely Michelle Falkoff will try to face one of her greatest fears!

Becky headshots-Becky headshots-0007Becky Wallace is the author of THE KEEPERS’ CHRONICLES: THE STORYSPINNER, a magical adventure in which a case of mistaken identity exposes a young performer to a danger she could have never imagined and a secret her father died to protect. It will be available from Simon & Schuster in March 2015. When Becky’s not writing, she’s baking cupcakes and teaching her kids ’90s dance moves.
