Feelin' good!

Yesterday was one of the best days I've ever had since I started this crazy journey as a soon-to-be debut author. (That's why I'm typing in purple--it's a pretty celebration color!)

No, it wasn't a day I inked a new deal--it was actually more than that. It was a fantastic day of chats with Editor K and Agent A and I'm finally starting to feel that I can do this! I've always been reeeaaally insecure about the author gig. You know, we all have those thoughts of I'm not good enough! Eeek, my writing is horrible! Will anyone buy my book?

I know those insecurities will come and go (and will probably be amped up as my pub date approaches) but yesterday, for a full day, I felt great about how far I've come since I started writing and am looking forward to where I'm going. :) It's all a giant learning process and though I've learned a lot, there's still sooo much more!

Agreed?

How fabulous that you got to that feeling! :) I think I have a long way to go to get to that point but I look forward to the day.

Thanks, Steph! And I'm sure you don't have a long way to go, but I can't wait to read your post when you do! :)

You're feeling what every other writer feels, Jess. We all have our highs and lows and doubts, and yes, even cockiness. LOL

I can't wait to go to the bookstore and see your book on the stands. I'm going to take a picture of it!!
