So….this writing thing…it’s hard. It’s a rollercoaster full of ups and downs. When you’re at the top of a really big rise, you feel as if you’re on top of the world, yet you know there’s a big fall coming. You anticipate it…gritting your teeth as you wait for the plunge…Your pulse pounds as you wait for that fall over that edge. It’s everything you never wanted.
There’s always an ‘And yet…’
That fall…it’s a harrowing ride, one full of self doubt, recriminations, and evil voices in your head. You’re not good enough. You’re not worthy. There are so many YOU ARE NOT’s going through your head…
Well, to all my fellow authors, I have this to say…that ride? It has nothing to do with you. The words, your incredible words, hold their own, with or without you. It has nothing to do WITH you.
And your readers will ride that roller coaster. Those plunges into the abyss??? They will scream and say that was the best part of the ride.
Where you sat in terror, they rode in white-knuckled bliss!
Trust in yourself, because at the end of the ride, there is no one but you and those who came along for the ride. You’re all wearing the same goofy grin. And here’s the secret….my fellow authors…none of them know the terror in your veins. All they remember is the thrill of the ride!
Embrace the ride! #RidetheRollercoaster
