This weekend I will be at an Autumn Arts Bazaar promoting my Mrs. Claus book. Although this is not my favorite part of the writing process, I know it can be fun. I just have to follow my own advice that I tell myself or my class about get the writing done. Just show up and have fun.
The possibilities are endless if I just show up and smile. I am not trying to impress anyone.
Having no expectations and being open to whatever happens makes this a win -win for me.
My husband follows the same philosophy. He doesn’t put a lot of thought having into a good or bad day and he usually comes away having really good days when many would only see the negative. It’s all about attitude.
I get to share Mrs. Claus, a book I enjoyed writing, and a book that is illustrated by a talented artist who spread the humor of my story of Mrs. Claus in a very effective way.
Imposter syndrome can affect us all if we let it. But the truth is if we write, we are writers.
And If I love what I do then why not share it? The Edison Autumn Makers’ Fair is a community event that supports Edison High School where my son went to high school. I will be among other creative people.
Giving back to my community while having fun and maybe even selling a couple of books makes it all worth it.
