My biggest insecurity at the moment is not measuring up to people's expectations. And by 'people' I mean folks like you.
I'm over the fear of "What if people don't like my book?" Not liking something and being disappointed are two different things. What I'm worried about is disappointing and more importantly, disappointing you. I've met so many amazing people in the writing community, folks who I've grown to know and care about and respect. However, I feel some of you may have certain preconceived ideas about my wip or my writing, and I'm afraid if you ever read my dribble someday, it'll turn into 387 pages of disappointment because I would have failed to fulfill your expectations.
At the moment, I'm wrapping up my second draft and will be shipping it off to my editor. And even though she's read most of it, I'm still afraid she's going to be disappointed with the changes I've made and in the story itself. If the book ever does see the light of day, I really would be tempted to not say anything about it. Screw it if I never sell a single damn copy. (0_o)凸
