I’m scared. I’m scared of many things. The thing that frightens me the most is failure.
Several years ago I wrote a children’s book and made a prototype of my idea. I know what you must be thinking, why do you need a prototype for a book. Well, I felt like my idea was more than just a story. It was a game. I thought it was really clever and other people did too. People even told me they would buy it for their kids. I thought, heck, people want to buy it, I should publish this. How cool would that be to become a published author. Now, several years later it’s still on my list of things to do.
I must kick myself and get over this fear of failure. I haven’t failed until I try and even if I fail the first time there are other methods to try. How would we have many things that we have in this world today if people didn’t try things and fail first, then try again and succeed. I must get better at action.
Wish me luck as I prepare my submission to Chronicle books. And maybe if they don’t want my book Net Minds will be ready for me. I have options. I have only failed myself if I have not tried.
Is there something you are scared to do? I would love to hear about it. And, if you want to encourage me and my submissions, I’m ok with that too.
I appreciate the likes and followers. Thank you for keeping me blogging.
Cheers to conquering your fears!
