I really was terrified when Diana Rowland emailed me with her critique of my novel. I didn’t open it for a day!! I figured if I didn’t open it, it couldn’t hurt me! Diana called me a wimp..and asked how I could get up on stage in a bikini (caveat here-for fitness competitions!) and not open a file?! My husband also thought I was nuts and told me if I didn’t open it I’d have nightmares of…"The File".
When I thought about what I’ve gone through year after year competing in Fitness, the discipline, the dieting, the pain, the suffering, the ultimate judgment on contest day, I realized if I could do that year after year (for ten years) I could open the darn file!
Once I did (and y’all saw this coming) it wasn’t so bad! In fact, I am now super pumped to get back at it. I got called on all the things I knew I was being lazy about, the world building I need to do, (I suck at world building stuff) and other parts I know I can improve on. I’m psyched, I really think I can do it.
