The Fear is back. The anxiety is rising. My book will be out in a little over a month and my concern that it is not good enough, that I am not good enough is taking over. I hate rejection. I have a total consuming fear of failure. I am half tempted not to put my book or myself out there, out for the whole world to see. But that is selfish, right? And stupid. I know I have to make this first step if I want to be a writer, a paid, professional writer.
So I will. I will put my book and myself out there for judgement. I will smile during my author photo session. I will not allow the fear the take hold. I will self promote with everything I have. I will work hard to make sales.
I will do this.
I can do this.
