This is me...Eliza. I am an Author Still with Training Wheels!I have become a very co-dependent person when it comes to being an author. I have joined groups and circles of people all in the writing community. I am still insecure about my writing, but not with writing. I can always sit down and just write. My insecurity lies deep within my conscious self. I always question whether someone will like it.
So with that said, I always turn to those I trust, knowing I can get the best advice possible from certain people. It has come to the point where they are my "training wheels". One day I know I will have to take them off and ride myself off into the sunset, but for now, they will remain my security blanket. I have discovered that the writing community is a very tight knit group of people constantly pulling for one another. Through the rejections all the way to being published. Everyone is so supportive! And I LOVE it!
I hope that one day I can be training wheels for someone else! I have been so focused on getting my "dream" that I am forgetting that I am "living my dream". The journey is part of it! I have so many supporters, and it makes me happy that I can put words down, that reaches someone in some way. I like my "training wheels" they make me comfortable, and I feel safer knowing that if I start to tip, they are there to catch me before I fall. So a big thank you to my safety nets, and to my supporters. I hope you enjoy my new author blog, and let's learn to ride this thing together shall we?
