A place to get away from it all and write….

So I am strongly considereing self publishing a piece of fiction I have been working on for almost a decade. Yes I know it’s a long time and my friends and family are tired of me changing my mind. It’s hard! Any writer knows how scary it can be to just put your writing out there for the world to see. I know what have I got to loose? ALOT. My dignity, my pride, and most of all my writing. My writing won’t actually disappear, but figuratively it will. It won’t be something I choose to share with people, being that it would be available for purchase.

Not to mention I have doubt in writing as well as my self. I am preparing for no one to purchase the book and it to just sit out there in cyber space. I know I will get bad reviews. I”m no where near a best-seller. See my dilemma? So any advice, words of encouragement or even the harsh reality that would be welcomed.

With the blog challenge over, I will be attempting to blog at least three times a week. I say this every year and end up posting about five times the rest of the year. I want to start doing author series where I interview different authors. I also want to take my readers along with me on my journey into self publishing.

So I am signing off for now. I have to create a new world for my sci fi class. Wish me luck!!

  1. I struggle with these same kinds of doubts. Writing makes me very happy, and I tell myself that I don’t need to be published because writing is primarily something that I do for me. I wouldn’t want to turn it into another source of stress by trying to “put it out there” so that others can read it and impose their opinions on it. Sounds selfish, but I’m just not ready to be published yet — so I’m enjoying writing for the sake of writing.

    Good luck with your blog challenge and your self-publishing journey!
