In the past weeks there have been posts on the Not Your Usual Suspect blog about bucket lists, finding the joy in writing again, fears and business plans. All of these resonated deeply with me because they have been my struggles. This past year I found my writing joy, enthusiastically attacked my writing bucket list and OMG, made a business plan. Overcoming, I can’t count how many, fears. The greatest being to get over my doubts and gather the courage to publish this book of short stories.
I can tell you fear and self-doubt are like an unhappy skunk trapped in your house. Not good. Chasing that skunk away isn’t easy and sometimes, even after you’ve thrown it out the door, you catch the odor.
That all said, the skunk has been evicted and fears overcome, the book is done and will be live next week. I LOVE the stories in this book. I hope everyone loves reading them as much as I enjoyed writing them.
And here is the cover.
