Let Me Tell You A Story

   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.  

  My newsletter subscribers will get a free read of one of the stories and be eligible for a portable cell phone charger. To sign up go to my web page  Rita Henuber

Rita, LOVE the cover. And totally love that you faced your fears and overcame them. As someone who's read a couple of your stories, I'm looking forward to reading more! :D

Rita, First off, you have a stunning web site, really enjoyed reading through it. Though it left me with a question: So I'll confess my ignorance, what's TSTL moment? Really want to know. Also what are stories on the "odd" side? Would like to know that too. Finally, your posts always come across as strong and confident, so I was surprise to hear you, too, have fear and self-doubt. Love your honest there. Have a great weekend, Jean

Thanks Anne.

Jean TSTL is Too Stupid To Live. Stories from the odd side mean these are all a bit odd.
