A-Z blog: Vonnegut

"We have to continually be jumping off cliffs and developing our wings on the way down." Kurt Vonnegut

I love this quote. I love this author. (I am also glad his last name starts with a V -- for this challenge)

I have to remind myself to be brave. To put myself out there. To put my writing out there. To get rejected (personally and professionally) because if I don't try, I will never get where I want to go. I can complain about being single...I can worry about it...I can have fits of rage about it...but unless I put myself out there...it won't change.

I have to put my writing out in the world. I have to quit being afraid of rejection...of success (that sounds strange, I know...but getting the reward of your hard work is a rather intimidating and wonderful prospect). I have to put my books out into the world, have to make myself known as an author...I have to jump off those cliffs of safety and comfort and build my wings on the way down...because once those wings are built...man, am I going to fly!!! So jump and build, Sodaro. No more hiding.
