I'm fighting the fear. I've let it keep me from editing my stories, from finishing old projects, and from moving forward on new ones. But that's the fast track to nothing.
I remember my first rejection letter. I had sent a short story to a magazine and waited a few months for a reply. I expected a rejection, but knew there was a possibility that they'd buy it. When I opened my rejection letter, I wasn't discouraged; I wasn't beaten down. For some odd reason that I still can't quite explain, I was encouraged and excited. Probably because I'd taken another step forward, and I knew I would still take the next step forward.
And I am. I've just started a Facebook Fan Page. Take a look. It's my new Facebook home.
Someday I'll walk. Then my feet will fly over the land and the wind will refresh my face, and I will run.
Today, I take another step with my head held high.
What fear are you facing? What will you do to overcome it and keep moving forward?
