I just visited my friend Cherie's website and my short story is on there TODAY! For some reason, I am scared to death. Why is that? She looked over it for me a few times, and I fixed some things that needed fixing and then she said it was fine. I trust her. She's a great writer. I didn't mind her reading it. I don't mind my other writer friends reading it. It's all the other people I don't know reading it. I guess it's the fear of failure that's bombarding me all of a sudden. If I'm going to be a writer, all I've heard is you have to have a thick skin.
I thought I had a thicker skin than this. I have got to get over myself. I've told myself over and over...everybody doesn't like everything. You can't please everybody. In my 45 year old mind, I know that, but the thought of having somebody tear it up one side and down the other is a bit daunting. I guess this is a weakness I need to work on.
So if you would like to read my guest post, (gulp) go to www.readywritego.blogspot.com and take a look.
I think I'll just stay off the internet for a while and not look at what anybody says. Might be the best option for me. :)
