Insecurity

Alex has this monthly gig on his blog called Insecure Writer’s Support Group. It’s pretty awesome. A bunch of writers and authors get their blogs together to keep the encouragement going.

I’ve got a new release coming out October 15th. And yesterday was my cover reveal. So, I’m feeling all…Will people like it? Will people buy it? Will they throw virtual eggs at my post?

But I can’t worry about that. I write because I love to. I donate a portion of all my proceeds to cancer research and awareness. And I love to encourage new and upcoming writers and authors. So, no matter if someone does throw an egg my direction, I’m glad to be doing what I’m doing.

So all you peeps out there striving for a goal, taking steps toward it, stay true to your faith, values, and craft, and you’ll be just fine!

  1. As the old saying goes “When life gives you eggs make egg salad” or is that right? Oh well, I think it’s great that you donate part of your proceeds to a good cause. That in itself is good reason to buy your books.

    You’ll do well I’m sure.

  2. Congrats on the new book, Lynn, and awesome cover. I can understand the feeling. I get very insecure about my work before I publish it.

    If you want to come do a chat on my Spacedock 19 feature in October, I’ve not yet booked anyone in October. I basically chat with an author on Wednesdays, except the 1st Wednesday … obviously. πŸ™‚

    • Thank you Tyrean!!!!! πŸ™‚ I lost my MIL to cancer last October, her name was Lynn (I’m her namesake) so it’s nice to try and give a little toward the nasty disease that killed her. πŸ™‚ It touches many peoples lives!

    • Thanks, Karen!!!!! I know, who by worrying adds a single hour to his life? It just drains us…but you’re right we’re human πŸ™‚

  3. I’m definitely going to check that group out, I know I could use it!

    I think it’s natural to worry and be insecure, because you’re putting something out there, something that takes so much of yourself and is something you love.
