So, I'm putting the finishing touches on revisions on my contemporary Christmas book, The Secret Santa Wishing Well. I've got the cover (Which is GORGEOUS!), it's being edited and getting ready to release it within the next few weeks.
Some say it's like giving birth.
I don't know what anyone else has felt, but I'm one nervous wreck! I'm reading books at night because I can't go to sleep without having read something, and I keep thinking- damn, why can't I write like this? Did I add enough of this or that in my book? Do I have to little conflict, is my heroine one that someone can relate to, blah blah blah? Yeah, you get the idea. Tons of questions in my mind.
First things first, I shouldn't compare myself to anyone else. I'm always saying that in other situations to other people, so why can't I take my own advice? I always feel like this when it comes to my passions- writing, singing, photography, etc.
Someone tell me I'm not alone? How do you handle the nerves? Does it ever get better after you release more?
I'm a wreck!
