Ladies and gents...it has been a quarter of a year already! Yowsa.
So here's my November 2011 insecurity about writing. It's this:
I know I'm not the only one. I've seen writers blog about their Big Six publishers and bemoan that their book is going straight to paperback. I have a mid-size publisher...but the way they do business is based on what works for them with a ten year history. I see how others do business, and it seems a smidgen ass-backwards, but I tell myself that I'm just being insecure. Just because other people have things doesn't mean that this is the best way. Why do I always compare what I have to what other people have? I need to be more appreciative of what I've achieved.
But it's hard. I guess I always find myself from time-to-time looking at what another person has gotten and asking why I don't have the same thing.
So if I or anyone else can take away anything from this post, it's this: We're never happy with what we have and only interested in what we lack. Awareness is everything.
