To Be a Writer - I'm already there!
What if, after all the work and anticipation, it isn't well-received? Argh! It's a hard thought to take.
On the other hand, it's another in a long, long series of what ifs. When I started writing, it was "what if" I really could pull together a novel. Now that would be an accomplishment, I thought, even if nobody else ever looked at it. Then it was, what if it gets good feedback at the writer's conference. When that happened, it was what if an editor asked for it, and liked it, and made a contract offer, and on and on.
So now, here I am thinking what if it sells? What if it doesn't? If it does:: hallelujah! If it doesn't, I will keep at it, because by now I really am a writer. I will keep writing, that much I know. I spent too long doing other things and found writing too late to give it up now.
