Have you seen the movie, Tangled? When Rapunzel is finally free from her prison-tower, she alternates between extreme happiness, yelling with joy, and then utter misery, feeling terrible and downcast. It was quite amusing.

My husband often compares me to this funny scene in the animated flick. He says I’m happy and excited about my books one minute—and then, I’m sure that I’m going to miserably fail the next.

It’s true. My writing journey has been a series of highs and lows. But, I’m on the precipice right now, about to jump. My first two novels are about to be released. One minute I’m so enthusiastic I can hardly stand it, and the next minute I’m wondering what the heck I’m doing.

Regardless, I’m ready. I’ve worked at this for several years—and it’s time.

Taking a chance is always scary in life. But, not taking a chance is . . . well, giving up.

Not an option.

  1. This is too true, but I would like to think that most authors experience these bipolar emotions when preparing to release their books to the public.

  2. What do you have to lose? Take the chance, and no matter what, you'll have an experience to tell your Grandchildren about!

      You're right, i have nothing to lose--and everything to gain.
