I’ll be honest, as I approach the long-anticipated release date of my debut YA novel, THE FIX, I have two major fears:
- No one will read my book
- Lots of people will read my book
Now that that’s out of the way, I decided to just show you a few things that make my heart beat a bit faster and the hair raise on the back of my neck.
1. A blank word document with cursor blinking (some people love this. Not me. I find it scary.)
2. Rejection (I’ve learned to get past this fear, because…practice. Writers get rejected on a daily basis. If you want to be a writer, you must know this.)
3. Stepping on a LEGO (If you haven’t, take my word for it…it smarts.)
4. A traffic jam when I have to pee
5. Apocalypse survival-type scenario–I have no contact lenses and my glasses are broken beyond repair
6. And finally, my number one fear…tidal waves (I don’t know why I put a picture here–now I can never look at this post again.)
