Emotions and Writing

Hello everyone! I've gotten a bit of writing done today. But, since I don't have much to mention on my book, I won't be mentioning it today. I do however need to own up to my writing.

If you've been actively following my blog, I first thank you, and I'm glad you've stuck around. I received some feedback from a few different people on my blog. It's good, they like the layout, but they asked why I blog. Well, it's for my book that I'm writing. The book I can't edit, publish, or have friends read because I'm avoiding the first book. I now realize that I need to own up to my book.

It's petrifying. These books are constantly on my mind. I don't think that automatically makes me a wonderful writer but it's the first time I've had this level of commitment and dedication. But it's also scary as hell. What if no one enjoys it? What if I never get this feeling with another book I write? Will I even want to continue writing after this book?

I didn't realize how much this doubt has been riding my subconscious. I've been saying how I want to advertise and how I'm working on the third book. But, by doing this, I've been drastically avoiding my book. So I'm going to change things. I don't have my file with my new laptop (rookie mistake) but I'll probably get it tomorrow when I go home. For Nanowrimo I can get the free hardcopy and the two soft cover books.

My plan is that, as soon as I'm done reading, I'm going to convert my book into both of these options. That way, I can give the word document to my editor, and then let my boyfriend and another friend read my book. I still don't have a title. I still don't have a clue how I'm going to publish it. But at least I'm not going to back down and I'm going to get on the right track.

I was also given the suggestion to give a teaser of my book. So, I haven't decided how much of a teaser I'll give, I'll put it on Tablo. It's a website where I could put some of the book up and I believe no one can copy and paste. I'll also put some pictures up when I get the three books sent to me. :)

Also, I'm only 108 page views away from donating $50 to Nanowrimo. I didn't think this would be successful but I'm glad it'll be going to a good cause. Of course, if I don't get quite to 2.5K I'm still planning on donating some money. :) Thanks for sticking around and I hope you'll continue to check into my blogs. Have a wonderful day!
