Part II:

I missed the insecure writers support group post yesterday (oops!).  I'm not sure how many people actually posted yesterday, since many are also doing the A-Z challenge. But I thought I'd make an attempt (a day late).  

My latest insecurity: 
I've taken the plunge into self publishing.  I'm so excited, because I can share my work on a large scale with (relative) ease. On the other hand, I'm terrified, scared that my success thus far (and again, this is relative, but I'm really happy with how things have progress in the last two weeks) is just a fluke and all interest will dry up.  But then, I guess that's a possibility no matter what your publishing situation.  Your book could go to print with a big publishing company and not sell, then go out of print.  An agent or publisher may show interest initially, then reject your manuscript in the end.  I suppose these risks are no different.  *Shrugs* 
In the end, if one complete stranger reads my work and loves it, not based on any obligation to me, but purely on the merits of the book alone, then my mission is accomplished.  Right?

  2. The key to keeping sales going seems to be to publish new material regularly. The more you have on your digital shelf the better. :)

  3. Not all publishers publish all writers the first time. Keep on keeping on and you'll get there. Your work is very interesting. Great post for D

  4. Congratulations on self-publishing. I think that's pretty awesome, and admire you for it.

    My sister recently had her first novel published, and I had no idea how much work and self-promotion were involved. You guys definitely get a lot of credit from me.

    1. Thanks! Congrats to your sister! What is her name? I'll look up her blog/website, if I'm not already following ;)

  5. I think you're right. If you hit it big, that's great. The most important thing is connecting with other people somehow and giving them something through your writing.
