Thanks to Alex J Cavanaugh for this monthly meme.
Writing is a crazy journey filled with ups, downs, curves and cliffs. I leapt off a couple of cliffs recently when it comes to the writing world.
Awaited released May 1st: It’s my sophomore release–that’s nerve wracking in itself–not to mention the thoughts that roared through my head on release day. “Will people like it more/less than Wasteland?” “Will it flop?”…you get the drift.
Prelude to Darkness released May 7th: As if ONE release wasn’t enough…a little short story released as well. It’s Wasteland point five. A prequel to book one.
So, to get me through the “yikes” of release month, blog tours, appearances, I had a few quotes of inspiration and encouragement.
“Never regret. If it’s good, it’s wonderful. If it’s bad, it’s experience.” ~Victoria Holt
“Wherever you go, go with all your heart.” ~Confucius
“Failure is no falling down but refusing to get up.” (I’m not sure who said this one–found it online)
“Life is like riding a bicycle. To keep your balance, you must keep moving.” ~Albert Einstein
Well, you get my drift. I hope these little quotes can help encourage you if you’re facing anxiety, uncertainty, or just feeling blahhh. Chin up, you’re not alone. Let’s live life together!
