The Reading & Writing Conundrum SOLVED & Other Ramblings

A little while ago I wrote a devastated blog entry where I was having difficulties reading a book and writing a book at the same time. Well, I’m happy to report… it was a fluke!

I was already going through some emotional turmoil in my life and I guess the drama in the book was exacerbating it– sucking me dry of creativity. As the stress in my life dissipated, so did my handicap. (Woo hoo!) It makes perfect sense! I don’t remember ever having that problem before, but then again, I’ve never tried to write as more than just a hobby before.

As alluded to in the previous paragraph, things are looking up for me in general, and today another bright spot shined through! I got my SECOND 5 star review this afternoon! So, that’s two for two!

I feel so many emotions… joy, relief, pride, inspired, determined… and I also feel scared! It would be unreasonable for me to expect ALL reviews to be 5 stars, so I’m waiting with bated breath for that one really bad one; that one that’s going to punch me in the gut. Yes, I know it doesn’t matter and yes I know I’m supposed to ignore mean people and trolls. But I’m only human, you know?

For now, I’m really hoping the positive feedback will gain me more readers. It’s going to be a long road, but I’m feeling encouraged and excited.
