I have about a third of my rough draft done.
Now I have to get the pitch ready.
I was going to write a pithy little blog full of humor, but really, I 'am panicked. Why? Honestly; I'm a afraid of looking like a fool and of rejection.
Really; its not like I've had haven't had rejection. My first story was sent back with a "It has predictable ending." *sigh*
My first acceptance was an article for a Self Defense magazine...! And now; I've gotten two articles in The Pulse, a magazine put out by the Heart Center and I help edit (and get credit for it!).
Now its time to pitch a book. (For those of you who read my earlier post--I'm drinking a lot of tea...but lately I've added wine a time or two...)
For some reason, my normal fairly creative self has gone on vacation AT THE WRONG TIME. I keep writing and re-writing my pitch and what do I get.
In spite of schlock; I'll pitch. I'll let you know what happens; if I don't have a heart attack before then.
So; to help myself; I've let myself just express my anxiety on the screen. Tell me how you dealt with your anxiety and the good and the bad....
