An Open Book
I am diligently and desperately waiting for the formatter to return the finished copy of my book, so that I can get it all done and stand before the court of public opinion. As each day passes and I look on and see people saying nice things and "liking" my Facebook page, I get excited. However, I can't help but wonder, "Will this be the biggest epic life fail since the time my Grandma bought me a pair of stone-washed neon green jeans and my mom forced me to wear them to school?"
I was actually so upset that I had to wear those jeans that I cried and, accidentally, peed on myself. I know, I probably shouldn't have shared that with you, but honestly, the part I really shouldn't tell you is that I was 17 at the time.
In general, I don't have an issue exposing myself - whether it be in a locker room or along a dark alley - but for some reason, this little book is making me quite nervous. But, I am sticking to my motto that I'd rather try and fail spectacularly than to wander around and worry about the "what ifs" of the world.
So, it's coming - sooner rather than later - and I do sincerely 'thank you' for the support and remember, if you read it and hate it, just fake laugh to my face that way we can all avoid an uncomfortable situation.
