Fear can hold you hostage, keep you imprisoned. I have been afraid to share my writing. My best friends: my almost sister and my almost charming husband along with my father-in-law and sister-in-law have pushed, pulled and prodded me to do something with my writing besides hiding it under the bed. I started writing when I was ten years old. I read Dave Barry’s interview in Writer’s Digest and he said, he was born a writer, writing was as much a part of him as breathing. I think that is me. I couldn’t go without writing, it is who I am. Now I am at that point where my novel is finished and I need to do something with it. I sent out my first queries and now I am terrified. Did I do it right? Did I query the right people? Will they be interested in what I have to say? So many questions and insecurities. Well it is out there and it out of my hands for now. Wish me luck.
