Last Friday, I got really brave and read a few segments from my book at the open mic night at Writer’s and Books. The comments I received were positive. I guess they heard me over the knocking of my knees.
I keep trying new things in the hopes that it will build my confidence enough so that I may one day be able to publish my work. Right now, I’m still feeling that it isn’t good enough. In the last few weeks, I am noticing that the members of the Tuesday night writer’s group are giving me more positive feedback and fewer suggestions for change. Also, I am beginning to get a handle on the dreaded “SHOW DON’T TELL”.
