My First Rodeo

My Life

Hey peeps! So, this weekend is to be an excitingly nerve-wracking one, for me. Why? Because it’s the first time I’m giving a full manuscript I wrote to test readers. Three, to be exact. Sure, a handful of people from my old writing class have read excerpts. But this, this is the first time anyone’s eyes besides mine will read the entire story. It’s scary as heck, but make no mistake: I’m SUPER FREAKING excited and happy 🙂

I got some copies printed at Staples yesterday. The whole ride there I was a nervous wreck: will my flash drive work? did I bring enough cash? will I get in an accident with a smartcar in the parking lot and die in a cloud of smoky doom? Of course, all of my fears were unfounded. I walked out of the store with manuscripts in hand, unscathed and, yes, alive.

One big manuscript there, yeah? She’s a fresh one. 127 pages of fresh, to be exact. I’ve spent the last two years of my life writing, rewriting, pacing around the room and talking to myself with this story. So many late nights, so many moments of banging my head against the desk and there she is. She’s ready to go out into the world now. I just hope the world isn’t too hard on her.

LOOK OUT, PEEPS! It’s gonna be wild.
