You: Are you ready?
Me: Not even a little bit. I’m terrified, frozen, paralyzed, afraid to begin.
You: What are you going to do?
Me: Jump. Press publish, send, go. What else can one do?
Her: But I think your first post should be really kick-ass. Powerful. You know? Stop the world in its axis and make it really pay attention.
Me: But if I do that, I will never do anything… my first post just has to BE. An outtake. Words on the floor. A promise of something to come. That’s all.
Him: There are no readers for the first post anyway. It doesn’t matter. It’s a throw-away.
Me: Words on the floor.
Me: And tomorrow?
Him: Tease again. And again. But be ready to deliver.
Me: I will.
WHO ARE YOU? about the author
I’m leaving this post up here for legacy/historical reasons, but for fuck’s sake–what was I thinking, blogging five times a week?
Yeah. Expect a post once a week at the most, kittens. Cause I’ve got books to write.
