I am taking a chance by deciding to publish my writing. I know the risks, but I also know that they are well worth the reward. Making this decision means opening myself up for ridicule; it means sharing a part of myself with the world. I’m not going to lie, it is all scary as hell. For the most part I am walking through this process blindly with nothing except my own ambition to guide the way. There are days when I question and second guess all of this, but at the end of the day I know it’s up to me to believe in myself and my dreams.
