Universal Awkward

universeOkay, first off, I’m not a giant of anything. No fee-fi-fo-fum about it. But whenever I think about marketing, about putting my work out there, I’m all about the awkward shyness, fear, inadequacy but not so much the blushing. I don’t blush as a rule.

Random awkwardness, unexpected shyness, feared inadequacy, and occasional blushing are just a few of the signs, dear Silver, that a giant is settling into their greatness.

Yeah, did you read any of this Note twice, Silver? That’s what we’re talking about.

That said, you know the Universe is probably on to something. I did read it twice–or more times–and I think I sort of know what the big U is talking about. While I don’t think I’ll ever be great or a giant in my chosen field, I can be better than I am. I can write. I can publish. And I shouldn’t get all weird about it. Right? Plus, I’m pretty sure this goes for all of us in some form or another, no matter where our talents lie. So…all together now…


And I’m over at Donna Cumming’s ALL ABOUT THE WRITING, along with several other writers. Today’s topic? What our heroes would give our heroines for their birthdays. Hrm…what do you think Chance would give Cassidy? Click and go find out. Were you right? 😀

  1. “…I’m all about the awkward shyness, fear, inadequacy but not so much the blushing…” You and me both. I don’t know about any of that making us giants. I think overcoming all that and moving forward anyway is what makes us giants. So let’s go stomp around the forest and scare some villagers, eh?

    I think Chance would give Cassidy a pretty little filly with amazing bloodlines. Skipping over there now to see if I was right.

    Fee-Fi-Fo-Fum…boom, boom, boom! Hey, we rock! All of us!
    We don’t have to giants in our little field as long as we’re doing what we love and enjoying every minute.

    And I agree with B.E. on this one. Chance would give her a filly. That would be the only thing that made her ga-ga. 🙂

    Nothing going on for me today… just a book coming out! What? And I’m not in a hospital! 😛

      That’s the bottom line, Ash. Loving what we do! Yup, big release party tomorrow. Looking forward to my hour of it! 😀 And getting the book so I can read it this weekend. Yayayayayayayay!
