Universal Discouragement

universeThis nudge from the Universe has been hanging out in my draft folder for quite awhile. After releasing CAFE MIDNIGHT yesterday and having two whole sales (one of them mine), this is the one that popped out at me when I looked for a topic for today.

Do you know what it sometimes means, Silver, when you feel a bit bummed out and aren’t sure why? When you catch yourself looking back over your shoulder and wondering? When you feel doubt, sense uncertainty, and experience fear? When you sometimes wonder what’s taking so long?

It means you’re normal.

Yeeeeeeee-haaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
The Universe

Well, Silver, as normal as anyone can be who possesses superpowers, commands legions, and rearranges physical circumstances simply with thought.

I’m not sure what it means, exactly, but I do catch myself feeling a bit bummed out, and I have caught myself looking over my shoulder all filled with doubt and stuff. And fear? Oh yeah! That’s a constant companion. I think this is a human thing. It’s definitely a writer thing. I’ve yet to talk to ANY writer who hasn’t expressed these exact sentiments at one time or another. And it’s normal. Aren’t you glad? *whew* I am.

P.S. As for that last part? Yeah, right. You make me laugh, Universe. 🙄

P.S.S. Stop by tomorrow for another cover reveal. The Only has been busy! 😀

  1. I still haven’t gotten my copy, but that’s not you, that’s me. It’s an odd time of the month – and probably not just for me. So stop feeling blue. Pretty soon all your fans will get themselves in order and then order Cafe Midnight – which will lead to reviews and more sales. :hugs: But I totally understand.

    Can’t wait for the cover reveal!

    The Universe is brilliant! Yes, normal feelings – but hard none-the-less! Hang in there – things will improve 🙂
