I’ve been lazy the last week and a half, I haven’t been focused on any of my WIP so I’m falling behind.

The thing is I’m kind of stuck and slightly discouraged. I recently posted a short story called “Turning Pointe’, which was completely out of my comfort zone. I am not a romance writer but some how that story just went in that direction. Now I’m not ashamed of writing a story that under normally circumstances I probably would not have written, in fact I am proud that I actually did something out of my bubble. But maybe that should not have been posted as a first story because unintentionally that became a representation of me as a writer, considering there are no other works up on my blog to weigh it against.

I dunno, its just that fear of failure and living up to expectations especially when people you actually know come across your work and make back hand, ambiguous comments about what makes a good story instead of straight out critique. I’d appreciate it more if someone told me respectful what they did or did not like.

But then again, why do I have to explain myself?

Anyway, my lunch break is almost over…

Here, have a meme!

    I like that meme. 🙂 Thanks!
    I’m glad that you’re exploring outside of your bubble. That’s great! You might find yourself with another bubble! Or not, I dunno, but you’re stretching yourself! HOORAY! That’s something I need to do, too. We all need to stretch ourselves sometimes.
