Modesty? What’s that?
There comes a time in every budding author’s walk where he or she will need to write an Author bio for Agents/Publishers. Now maybe I’m alone in this, but I have a really hard time doing that – simply because I’m not usually one to blow my own trumpet in that way.
The result? Ridiculous amounts of time spent staring at Blinky, the idle text cursor.
Now the job does get done – it has to be, but then comes the evil little devil voice saying, “Wow, that’s all you got? You suck.”
Little devil voice tends to say a bit more than that to be fair, but you get the idea. Long and short of it is, this whole becoming an author thing? At this stage it’s a whole lot of ‘me’ talk followed by a period of uncertainty and self-doubt.
Anyone else honestly get that?
