I can honestly say that the thought never crossed my mind. I slogged away, writing, revising, rewriting, querying, and querying some more. And then I received an offer of publication.
Suddenly, I had a whole new thing to stress about. What if people hate my book? What if they think I’m a joke? What if they laugh at me? What if they rip my writing to shreds?
I never really thought much about what it might be like to actually be published. I just knew that I wanted to be. But now, I”m doubting myself, and worse, I’m doubting my own writing. And it’s more than just doubts. I’m downright scared. Like, have-a-nightmare-every-night scared.
I honestly don’t know how to deal with it. I never imagined this scenario and I”m not sure what I should do to make myself quiet worrying. Does anyone have any advice for me?
