I’m Okay.

It's Ok

Some of you know or have figured out that I am aspiring writer. Duh! I don’t say “author” because I feel (my opinion) an author is someone who is in print. Someone who has successfully made the journey through queries, writing a synopsis, rejections, editing from Hell, and tears. Lots of tears…and I’m not there yet. “Yet” being the keyword in that statement. I am trying and to try you must participate. So, I put a piece in a competition and lost! How awesome is that!!! I lost!

I know you are looking at this like I have lost my mind- I have but that was long before I even wrote a book. I’m good with losing because I couldn’t lose if I didn’t try. I put it out there. I tried! Do you have any idea how hard it is to put your soul on the line? To be judged in any way? I crossed over that barrier and laid my work at the feet of those who “know.” They took this journey and are guiding me in the “write” direction. LOL! See what I did there? Right vs Write? Never mind.

I was in it but didn’t win and that’s awesome.

I did well but didn’t win and that’s cool.

I set my fear of judgement aside and didn’t win and I am so proud of myself.

As a prize for losing…I entered two more competitions.

I am...interesting. I am a writer, dreamer, mom, wife, veteran, friend, villain, and the wearer of many hats, but I don't look good in hats- go figure. I LOVE TO WRITE. I want to tell stories. I want to make you laugh, cry, and scare the crap out of you, and make you ask "why the hell did you do that?" I want to make you cheer my characters on or want to shake the crap out of them for things they say and/or do. I want to bring you along for the ride. Ready? Set?...READ!!!

  1. I’ve always said that you have to be in the fight to win the fight. I’m proud of you. You took your lumps got back up and are continuing to train for your next fight. Keep swinging beautiful. I’m in your corner.
