IWSG - November



since my last IWSG post *A LOT* has happened here in my little corner of cyberspace. i was offered and accepted REPRESENTATION with an amazing agent and agency, finished editing my manuscript for said awesome agent, and finished up my third novel, edits and all.

whew...

all crazy cool radness aside, i still have insecurities. it's interesting...i'm feeling more confident than ever in some respects and more timid in others. i have silly fears like, what if my book cover ends up looking like bad clip art? to BIG fears like, what if i don't deliver (for readers, for myself, for my agent...)?

but those thoughts are fleeting.

mostly i'm excited - so, so very excited. i'm thrilled (HUGE understatement) that things are happening, and that i am delivering. i'm doing it -- in my own way, the best i know how...




thanks to alex cavenaugh for starting IWSG!!!

  1. With each step new insecurities pop up. I'm afraid a shirtless guy will end up on my cover. LOL. Or that my book won't sell. Or... haha. It all comes with the job. BUT we do have an amazing agent who believes in us and it's going to be awesome.

    Thanks for sharing. ;0)
