{something new}

Of all the things I've done in life, of all the risks I've taken and all those times I've put myself out there, nothing is as terrifying as this.
It's still not done, and it probably won't be for another few months. But I'm closer than I've ever been before, and it's the thought of actually finishing my book that terrifies me. What am I supposed to do with it once it's done? I want to put it out there; I want to share this little piece of myself with all of you, but I don't know how. I guess it's a good thing I have a little bit longer to think about it.

You are so brave! I know this is such a vulnerable task to undertake but you can do it! I'm excited to read it!

Never once--for any of the four book projects that I've started but ultimately abandoned--have I ever let another soul read a word of what I had written. It's so brave, and so exciting, that you are sharing! I can't wait to read it!

Um WHAT?! A book?!!?! This is amazing. I want to read it! :)

Congrats on writing a book. I'd say the best way to get it out there is to get friends to read it, go to writers workshops, and start writing queries to publishers.

it is a scary thing! it's a new identity - you have been writing a book for so long (relatively - you know what I mean!) that being able to say "I wrote a book" is like being a new person. but it's an exciting thing, too!
