Thanks to those subscribers who have stuck with me during my break – it’s appreciated, thank you 🙂 … and to those receiving this as an edited post, yes, I’m out of practice, sorry! lol 🙂
So this post finds me slightly tired, but very excited as I will be taking a very brave step within the next few minutes. Having finished my first novel – well, my second strictly speaking – I am stepping into the daunting world of rejection by looking for an Agent. I know, I know … brace myself! Put some armour on! I can hardly believe I’m doing it really.
It’s ridiculous how nervous I am and I’m sure it will pass once I’ve gone past the point of no return and clicked ‘send’ to my draft email. There is a circus of contradiction going on in my head at the moment. I mean, you’ve got to believe in yourself to get up the courage to try, but you’ve got to prepare yourself for rejection knowing the odds are against you. It’s a twisted mixture of excitement and dread!
The other thing is this: it dawned on me earlier this afternoon that a lot of my nervousness is because I’m finally putting myself out there. Instead of hiding away I’m going to be saying, “Look! I’m here! This is what I can do!” Not my normal way of doing things, well, it hasn’t been for a while anyway.
So in the spirit of being brave, I think it’s time I revealed my identity … something so simple, but this is HUGE for me!! I found great comfort in my anonymity. So, I’m taking a deep breath now. Are you ready? *drumroll*
my name is Rosie Walsh.
Pleased to meet you 🙂
Wish me luck!
Bye for now x
