Though I'm still writing Through the Flames, I'm already dealing with first time jitters.
The first time that I am referring to is the time that you get a book out in the open.
As I write my book, I can't help but wonder how the response will be.
What if no one likes it? What if it turns out that I'm a horrible writer? What if my entire plan for the series, and the fantasy world itself, fails because of a terrible opening volume?
It's incredibly nerve-wracking, and it can be hard to try to hold confidence in myself and my abilities as a result.
That is part of why I blog about my book so much... well, that and the fact that this blog is dedicated to The Sword of Kirakath, along with the other books that will be published in the fantasy world of Terra Fatum.
As the saying goes, "Fake confidence, and real confidence will follow."
It's not working all that well, but I can be pretty pessimistic at times. I guess I won't truly know how it is taken until Through the Flames is up on Amazon and possibly Smashwords.
Well, that's it for the day. I might not post as often from now on. Apparently posting daily is only good in theory. It's easy to run out of things to say, especially if you don't want to ruin any surprises.
That's it for me. Thanks for reading.
