Well, I did it. I uploaded my manuscript for publication.
And I’m scared sh*tless.
(what an odd term that is)
Odd, but applicable.
According to the post, 10 Things That Will Happen When You Start Pursuing Your Dreams, I’m right on track.
That’s 10 Things, beginning with,
1. You are going to be scared sh*tless, more than once.
Fear may be paralyzing at times, yet the desire and passion to do what you love has a stronger hold on you than fear ever could.
And ending with,
10. There will be a day when you’re as happy as a kid who just discovered their first jump house, all smiles and laughter.
In this moment, you’ll wonder, “Why the hell did I wait so long? I’ve never felt more alive in my entire life. The ups and downs are just part of this crazy ride, and man, am I glad I didn’t quit last week.”
I’m looking forward to wondering why the hell I waited so long.
In the midst of the move, the “hurry up and wait” methodology of indie printing is working well. While I wait for the proof to arrive, I might as well pack. A helpful little distraction from being scared sh*tless.
Here’s to hoping the proof looks good and I can go live!
Stay tuned for pre-order info.
I may just hire a jump house in celebration.
“The guys hanging out, like old times,” they said.
What’s the worst that could happen?
