This month's insecurity is very basic one. In less than two weeks I'll be releasing my first novel (February 17th!**), and I'm more than a little nervous about it. All my insecurities have been detailed in previous IWSG posts, and I just don't have the time or energy to dwell on them right now. I've made the commitment, set the date, and gotten the files loaded to the appropriate systems. That's it. I'm done. No turning back, so I just need to get over it.
So, today I'm setting aside my insecurities, and thinking positive thoughts. I'm trying to be like that guy Stuart Smalley. You know, this guy:
(FYI, and way off topic, but I just found out his name is Smalley, and for the past twenty-something years I thought it was Smiley.)
How's it going with all of you? Are you giving up or giving into insecurity today?
**PS, If anyone is interested in helping out with my release, please leave a comment. I'll be sending info this weekend to those who have offered to feature my novel, Weaver, on their blogs on February 17th. Anyone who signs up will be entered into a raffle for a chance to win a copy of Weaver. One print copy and two ebook copies will be on offer.**
