Casual Friday: And Fearless Friday

Hello and Happy Friday, Lovely Misfiteers!



So earlier this week I did something, something that probably should have intimidated me or at the very least made me slightly nervous. But I didn't allow myself the time to think about what I was doing, I just did it.

I also read a blog post about fear and was in the midst of a casual conversation that started with the question "Do you guys remember being fearless?"

I thought about this collectively all week and really wanted to bring it here and use all of this to ask you a question for casual Friday. I want us to answer it for ourselves not necessarily for each other (but if you want to share that would be awesome!)

What's the WORST thing that could happen if you followed your dream?

As writers the fear of being judged (having our writing judged, our creations judged, our very existence judged) is a huge thing that holds us back, yes? But what really comes with that judgment? What are the consequences to that judgment? Or that rejection or denial?

Does a beta say "I didn't really connect with your MC, so give me your dog. You can never see Baxter again."

Does an agent tell you "This MS really isn't right for me, so you'll have to move out of your house and back in with your overbearing mother!"

Of course these are our hopes and dreams so we want to be successful and reach the top, but we can't have that unless we try. So if fear is what is keeping you from trying, what's the worst that could happen? I think if we put it in to perspective we might see that we are making it so difficult for ourselves when our writing might be worth so much more than we can see. Or at the very least that beta or agent will let us down super gently and we'll be strong enough to try again.
