Great quote for budding authors

I read the BEST quote today on one of those elevator TVs. I need to make me a plaque that says this:

“Fear doesn’t keep you from making mistakes; it only keeps you from sharing them.”

Fear has been my biggest enemy in my writing process. Fear that my writing isn’t good enough. Fear that my story isn’t good enough. Fear that people will ridicule my work. (have you read some of those book reviews on Amazon????)

I am waiting for revisions from my editor (chewing my fingernails). Then its on to getting a book cover and ISBN and all that ‘fun’ stuff!

I keep saying my mantra is ‘Publish in 2015’ and I’m doing my best to make that happen!
