on writing: the inspiration to share

I’ve really debated doing this for over a year. I hate unfinished projects and products so the thought of putting something out in the universe for other people to consume really made me uneasy.

But all of that changed when a friend started doing the very thing that I feared doing. Well, I’ll have to backtrack a bit. He started a few months ago with a blog of short stories and portions of what would become a first novel. It made me think that I could put portions of chapters or chapters up, but I still hesitated. What if I didn’t finish? What if I changed it and people reading it were confused or disappointed? Ugh. It just made me never want to let anyone read anything I wrote ever again.

Until the aforementioned friend announced late last week that his book was for sale on iBooks. Hmm. That made me reconsider. Perhaps I could eventually sell this the same way. And really the only way I would be able to do that is to share portions of it now.

So, I wrote an intro. Described the character. Described the book. And…let no one see it.

Ugh, again. But here goes.
