Aw, my little section was empty.
I was thinking about how much courage it takes to be a published author. I'll get into how much courage it takes to actually write later. This was spurned on by asking for reviews and preparing to call bookstores and set up signings. I'm not a 'people person' and generally prefer to not be on the phone, so having to interact with others while asking for their opinion on my work forces me to dig deep inside.
...I had more thoughts on the subject but the day job approaches.
