Today is my 100th blog entry.
Wow! I can't believe I started this blog only this past April and now here I am writing my 100th post. I thought this most auspicious occasions was worthy of cake. So there it is. Cake.
I was going through some of the my earlier entries and had myself laughing last night about some of the things I have actually posted on this site. I guess at the time they seemed like a good idea.
To date my hardest entry was undoubtedly yesterday's post where I shared with you guys a snippet of my writing. (First off I want to apologize for the grammatical errors that I did not catch before posting. I was a little nervous. At least that is the story I am sticking to.) Right now I am not sure why I was so freaked out to do it, but there it is. I wrote the post the night before it was due to go up and scheduled it so I could not chicken out.
You would think that would have been the end of it, but no. I made quite a few forays into my office during the evening and late into the night trying to decide if I should post it. With my hand hovering on the mouse and the mouse skirting around the delete key, I made myself a nervous wreck. Now that I have done it, I am kind of disgusted with myself. What was the big hairy freakin' deal? Besides the fact that I am a total wuss.
I didn't send out a book to be critiqued. I sent out a few paragraphs and while everyone was so wonderful in their support, there wasn't enough there to really see what I am made of. Putting out a few paragraph's is completely different then submitting a piece of work for feedback or acceptance. So while I do not have anything near ready to be read by an agent, I am going to continue with the Teaser Tuesday's.
I am also going to finish the WIP I have currently been slaving over and get it ready for the beta readers. Yes, I am going to take a chance.
So wish my luck.
And to all you who stop by on a regular basis whether you comment or not, I really do appreciate you. So thanks!
