Feels like the first time…

I hit “enter” on the digital upload for my second publication* today. That’s some scary key pressing.

Seeing as I’ve already done this BEFORE*, it shouldn’t be a big deal, right?
WRONG.

I suspect every time feels like the first time.
Doubt creeps, worry consumes, errors are imminent.

Luckily, in this current digital age of publishing, doubt can be assuaged, worry overcome, and errors corrected. But still…I’m not sure that practice can make perfect when every project is a new project, when each story is a new story, when every pressing of the “enter” key feels like the first time.

I’ve completed stage one of the publishing process. Now I wait.
Wait for approval.
On story content.
Cover art.
And the horrible, torturous, dreaded formatting.
When it’s live, I’ll let you know.

Oh, man, will I ever let you know!

*In the meantime, help yourself to my FIRST publication, Pocket Money. Available on Amazon, Kindle, B&N, and also at local libraries and select book stores.

About Mary Fran Says

I am an artist, crafter, designer and writer. I enjoy working with mixed media-- applying visual and tactile manipulations to telling a story. Not a lot of market for that, though, :), so I'm focusing on short story submissions and novel completions. Yes, plural. Lots of beginnings, too many ideas, not enough focus.
