The Fear

When I first dove head-first into Romance Twitter, I saw a tweet that's always stuck with me. It said something to the effect of, "As a writer, you spend your life being afraid you'll never get published. Then, once you get published, you spend your life being afraid you'll never get published again."

Today, as I sent out review requests to blogs and checked in on my Netgalley page, I couldn't help but be consumed by this fear. Sure, I got published. Of course I'm proud of The Roswell Affair... But what if I'm the only one who likes it? What if it's a terrible flop and I never get published again? What if I got a taste of my dream only to never live it again? 

I don't actually have answers to this question. All I know is I won't know unless I keep writing, keep querying, and keep developing my craft so more people will love it!
