Overcoming my own fear has been one of the biggest hurtles I find myself facing in my life. I'm sure I'm not alone in this. A few weeks ago, I had been come again consumed by this fear. I had been in denial all summer about my plans for the fall and how I would manage this new job while keeping up with my writing. Then as September approached I was wondering if I should back away. I was certain I was in over my head. I was so close to quitting it was ridiculous. I'm glad I didn't.
Two weeks in and...its okay. *insert this is fine gif here :P *
But really everything is manageable for now and I'm glad I didn't quit because this was something I had been considering doing for a long time.
Fear has stopped me in the past in my professional and personal life. It's insane to think of the opportunities I have missed out on because I was too afraid. I haven't always let it stop me and that's a good thing or I would never have even tried to write a book. It is so cliche but don't let fear stand in your way.
On that note however, I think my publishing schedule will slow down a bit. I have two more books coming out and two audiobooks being made but that will be it for this year. Next year I have only 4 books planned as I will be focusing on my new project - also in an effort to not avoid burning out too quickly.
