Addicted to publishing

Publishing my first book was both terrifying and exhilarating.

How would it be received? Would I be outed as a fraud and have my internet privileges locked away? Would people be kind or mean?

So many emotions came with the first book, and when nothing exceptionally bad, or amazingly good happened, I kept writing.

As I was ramping up to publish book two, I got excited. It was a geniuses idea that come from nowhere. This was going to be the big one! This one will launch my career. The excitement was palpable.

It was received to the tune of …

But that’s okay, writing marches on, my next book is almost ready.

Here we go again, let’s publish this baby. This is the one! I’ll be famous. It’s my best yet.

It gets the most five star reviews. People do love it. I’m not famous YET.

I published again and again.

I came to realize I’m addicted to publishing! With every book I get excited. I know it will be the one. The one that hits it big. The one that make it’s to the New York Times best sellers list. The one that will get me out of this town.

Will this be the one? Stay tuned and find out.

  1. So so true Theresa. Some people write one book and it’s
    a big success. You wonder, how did they do it? Great writing skills? Luck? Or the subject, timing and public mood all line up perfectly.
    As with my songwriting, I believe it gets better with each new song, but to date, no interest from the ones who can make a difference.
    That’s okay though. Like you I feel good inside when the twinge of an idea becomes a finished product.
    For now love what you do, embrace the challenge and most of all be patient . Moving slowly forward into fame may make it less scary and easier to handle.
    Love you,

    Dad
