So. . . what do you worry about?
Wednesday, May 16th, 2007

Well. . . two more days until Crystal Clear is released and I’m a wreck!

I know, I’m supposed to be excited. . .and I am, with the same excitement you feel in that dream, you know the one where you’re taking a final exam that day and you didn’t even realize you’d enrolled for the course! I think I missed the class “How to be a Published Author”

Just to list what I’m worrying about:

1) What if no one buys the book?
2) What if the people who buy it, hate it?
3) What if I get horrible reviews?
4) What if, what if, what if. . .

And yes, ALL of those things are out of my control. I’ve tried worrying about the things I can control, and I’ve been “out there” promoting the book, getting my name out on lists, and blogging until everyone is simply sick of the name Ericka Scott. . .

I’ve heard it said that the best way to promo a book is to write another one. . .and I can’t write because I’m worrying too much! Argh!

So. . . what do you worry about that is totally beyond your control?
