Lately, I've found that I'm insecure about a lot of things.
First of all, I signed up for the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Award contest, which I'm probably not ready for. Actually, I'm very sure I'm not ready for it. I don't feel like my book is good enough yet. And with all the helpful advice my beta readers gave me, I've still got a long way to go.
Of course, I signed up anyway. Mostly because I know the worst that can happen is that they just won't pick me to go on to the next round. And that's a thousand times better than a bunch of other 'worst things' I can come up with.
Another thing I'm insecure about is the new monthly bloghop, The Knights of MicroFiction, that my mom and I are co-hosting. It's really just a fun way to get to know people and get your creativity flowing through writing short pieces of fiction. But like Alex J. Cavanaugh said in his post today: what if you threw a party and no one attended?
I know it sounds silly but it's a real insecurity that I think most of us have. Because if you make something up, and no one shows, what does that say about you?
To my surprise, a few people (three, to be exact :) ) did participate, and I'd like to thank them so much for supporting us in our first bloghop. I'd also like to thank all of my followers for joining my site! I FINALLY HIT 200!! So, I must be doing something right! You guys rock! And just as a reminder, if you'd like to participate next month in our Knights of MicroFiction, here's the Linky List you can sign up on!
