I Did It! I Was Brave. #366Days Day 26

fireworks exploding in a night sky

I did it. I did it.

I wrote yesterday in my Pink Typewriter Post that I wanted to do something every day to conquer my fear when it comes to my writing. I have now officially completed my registration form for the writers workshop on how to get published. I didn’t let my nerves talk me out of signing up for a one-on-one pitch session with an agent, and I even fought off the negative voice in my head that was telling me that it’s too soon to get feedback on my pitch letter. I did it. I dove in.

Know what? I’m still scared, but at least I’m on my way.

And, doing that one thing gave me the courage to open the beginning scene of my book and start thinking about how to revise it. It’s kind of amazing how readily I could see things that needed to be changed after having allowed some time to elapse. I still don’t 100% know what I’m changing it to, but at least I’ve started the process. And it’s all because I decided to be braver than I was afraid.

It’s the very last day of 2015. What can you do to overcome a fear that’s been holding you back? There’s no time like the present.

  1. “…because I was braver than I was afraid.” Don’t know of a wiser saying. Thank you, Dawn. Be blest and inspired in 2016! Love and Peace, Nancy
