Reply Reading Lisa’s comment above reminds me exactly how I felt when I launched my book in Nov. And it was just about the time I started reading your survival guide Sue. I let out a big sigh of relief. lolThanks for addressing so much of what goes thru our heads. I had a lot of the fears and felt so vulnerable once my baby was out for the world to see. And you’re so right. Those vulnerabilities are because we put our passion out there. Not everyone will like it. But that’s ok. And right now I’m writing something way out of my comfort zone and that gives me plenty of fear. I almost didn’t do it. We shall see what happens. 🙂Thanks Sue! Reply This. Is. Me. In a nutshell. I was in tears moments ago, but thank you! Today is the official release for my book, and I’ve been mired in this thought process through the entire journey. Again, thank you! Reply Hello, Lisa! And I’m sorry for making you cry, but not really. 🙂 I hope it came with the realization that you’re awesome and you can do ALL OF THIS. Congrats on the release of your book! You are doing a wonderful and brave thing! Reply Very inspirational and informative Susan Thank you! Reply Thanks for stopping by! Reply Fabulous discussion. Thanks! Reply Thank you, Julie! Reply Susan, this is a wonderful video and very spot on for where I am in my journey right now. I especially love the part about taking creative action. I, too, have a project that seemed bigger than me, and just last week, I plotted it out. While you were talking, I kept thinking how it isn’t as scary as it was in the beginning. OMG, what if I weakened the idea some how? And then you said that the fear dissipates, and I’m smiling. So thank you! Very helpful. 🙂 Reply Yay! So glad I could help make that connection for you! 🙂 And it’s it hilarious how that sneaky fear just keeps finding new ways to express itself?? Reply Love this! Thank You! Reply You are most welcome! Reply I read a number of your Survival Guide posts as they went up on your blog, and they were super helpful and informative! Thanks for creating such a great resource for writers 🙂 Reply Thanks so much for following along! Reply Leave a Reply Cancel replyYour email address will not be published.
