And thus, this is where two words have come into play time and time again:

I'm scared that if I send this story off to others, they're going to rip it to shreds with their comments and wonder why I tried to write at all.
I'm scared that if I send this rewritten, edited and so-much-loved story to agents and editors, their rejections will validate I'm not a worthwhile author to take a chance on.
I'm scared that when the blog touring dust settles, noone will ever think twice about buying my book so that must be why I have to keep tweeting, blogging, pinning, facebooking all different ways to say "buy my book.
I've made a lot of decisions based on the presence of those two words as part of my mindset, some of them smartly cautious, others...well, dumb and naive are the kinder words to describe those decisions.
It's time for me to let "I'm scared" go, release myself from fear's hold, and simply let myself breathe the words I love to write, live life and stop fearing the worst.
It's time to hold on to more smiles, more positive thoughts, more confidence in knowing that my writing passion is a flame worth fanning with more of my own publications as Angela Brown and as Rayven Goldchild.
Writing makes me happy and I'm letting go of "I'm scared" so I can be free to share even more of my happiness with the world.
It's time to let it go...
For me...or for you :-)
