Here we are with another topic for Marketing for Romance Writers 52-Week Blog Challenge.
Week 44: My Biggest Fear
Before I delve into this week’s topic, I have to say I had last week’s post written in draft but went on a day trip then forgot to get back to it upon my return. “But you had a whole week (or forty-four weeks) to write the post?” This is true, but when I’m in my book writing zone, the book is what I write—especially with two to finish.
The theme last week was: My Favorite Apps. One day I’ll complete the topic and put it up as a post, anyway.
Now, shall we get to this week’s topic?
I get fearful every time I send a book to my editor or before publishing a book. I don’t like flying because I’m fearful of crashing. My oldest boy lives three-thousand miles away. I fly white-knuckled a lot of the time. Other than that, I don’t talk too much about my fears.
I’ve overcome some of my fears only to fall back into them again. I bet I could overcome them again if I had to…like climbing the tallest lighthouse in my Great Lake State. It’s the bigger fears that make me totally numb where I can’t move. I’ve learned to depend on myself to save myself, and if I’m too fearful, how do I? Then what if I can’t?
However…it’s in my makeup to persevere. I depend on this, and prayer, to get me through my fears.
I have faced some of these fears and got through them. Will I again? I don’t want to find out.
You may ask why I bothered to write this post when I won’t tell my biggest fear(s). Well, I will reply by saying I don’t like to tell my fears when they can be used against me in certain circumstances.
Thanks for reading.

Don’t turn your back upon your doctrinal doubts and difficulties. Go up to them and examine them. Perhaps the ghastly object which looks to you in the twilight like a sheeted ghost may prove to be no more than a table-cloth hanging upon a hedge. ~A.H. Boyd~ QuoteGarden
