Thursday Thoughts: Universal Decisions

As each day goes by, I get closer and closer to releasing GHOSTS & THE ANCIENT STONES. This books scares me. A lot. One, it took so long to finish writing. Two, it’s not the book I started writing several years ago. Three, I took some chances (okay, I didn’t, the characters made me! That’s my story and I’m sticking to it!). Four, while this story made me laugh and cry and there were more than a few tears (and not the blood and sweat kind but the all-the-feels kind), I don’t don’t know if readers will feel the same. Four, this series has never done as well as I’d always hoped it would and trying to figure out why is a whole ‘nother post. Five, I’m worried those who do read the series won’t like this book. So, when it’s ready and I pull the “trigger” on it’s release–probably sometime next week–I’m going to remember this message from the big U.

Next time you feel fear, Silver, either right after a major decision or just before one, it usually means you’re exactly where you need to be.

Funny, Silver, how good you are. Really good.

Because the fear will be real, baby. And I can only hope the book is as good as I think it is. Forget about me. I just want my words and books to be good. So tell me, what do you fear?

  1. I would say… YES, this book is as good as you think it is. But I totally understand the feeling. And I know that no matter how much people tell you how awesome you are, the doubt still exists. Doubt’s a killer. Been there, done that, living the nightmare right there with ya, baby.

    Other than fear my books will never sell enough to buy a cup of coffee with the proceeds, I am overburdened with fears. It’s my nature to worry about everything. But I hide it well. And I carry on. Go outside, pull some weeds or something. Let every weed be a fear and yank that sucker right out of the ground.

      Yeah…about those weeds… 🤣🤣🤣 I should send you photos of my “yard.” That said, I really should try to eradicate the bermuda grass in the front raised bed. Of course, that’s about the only place it grows so there’s that. Anyway….

      I’m just at that point in my head. This, too, shall pass. At the moment, I’m more frutsrated with Word and how glitchy it’s become since the last update. I can’t print Word docs. I spent 48 hours thinking it was my printer. Yesterday, I discovered it was Word. But to fix it, I have to go into the directory and rewrite code and that ALWAYS gives me hives. So…maybe enough folks will b!+ch about it and they’ll fix the bug. It’s not like I print a lot anyway. Still, frustrating.

      Anway, carrey on my wayward sister. 😉 And as always, thanks! ❤
