Hey Mikey, they like it!

On Sunday, I attended my critique group. :cringes: Yeah, I feel this way every time I hit send. I know my grammar mechanics suck and my fears rear their ugly heads.

What if no one likes it? What if they don’t get what I’m trying to say? Oh my God…I might need therapy. Lucy-Therapist

I persevered and pushed on, my friends. Onward and forward, I hit send. :prays silently:

Don’t judge me because apparently it worked. They liked it, ha!

Of course, I was still taken to task about commas, exposition, point of views, etc. But they liked it. Then someone said the words every writer longs to hear and yet is terrified of, “I’m hooked, I want to know more.”

labyrinth_goblinsUh oh. Feelings of euphoria, excitement, nausea, and giddiness tightened their grip on my soul as little goblins of nervousness and oh crap danced around in my head.

A friend once told me it doesn’t get any easier. In fact, with each book it gets harder.

I’d like to take this moment to thank my hubby for having health insurance.
