Hey, Insecurities!

Do I have insecurities this month? You betcha. It's bathing suit season. Nothing is more traumatizing to the ego than that! 

Oh, you mean writing insecurities? Yes, indeed, I have those too. I have a book on submission, so every time I check my email, I am hopeful and terrified. Rejections never get easier. No matter how many I get, I have never learned to like them. They're much like boiled brussel sprouts. No matter how often I'm reminded they're good for me, I'd rather never have a plate of them. 

Which leads me to this month's question...

Have I ever quit writing?  No. I never quit writing. I've been writing my whole life. It's what I do. It's my happy place. My therapy. My psychosis. 

But-- there are times when I unplug. I'll get worn out with all the marketing and platform building so I curl into a fetal position with a pencil and go old-school-- scribbling thoughts on blank pages. Then, Barbie or Tina (golden-hearted readers) will send me a nudge and I'll crawl out of my hole and get back to work.

*I'm on vacation, so this will be my last post until I get home. I'm sinking my toes in the sand, forgetting to wear sunblock, and whining about sunburn pain and age spots.
