Lately, I’ve been judging quite a lot of things about my book. In fact, at one point, I made myself sick to my stomach worrying about the cover. It was a meaningful design based on an old Soul Collage of mine, but the collage included magazine photos which, of course, are protected by copyright laws. At first, I tried to find the best way to deal with all of that and keep the cover design, but it wasn’t working. I was getting nowhere.
My stomach settled immediately when I decided to ditch that cover and start from scratch. I kept it simple and now, we are getting somewhere. It’s an interesting feeling when you put yourself out there like this. It’s all about judgment. People will judge me, my talents, my abilities, my experiences, and my choices.
Big step. And I’m willing to take it. Satisfaction will come when some of you out there are willing to take a step toward me and hear my story. Hope to see you there.
