Well, my not so secret secret is out. I’m writing an eBook and you know what? Just between you and me, it’s a little scary.
I’m used to seeing my articles, short stories and poems published but this is different. This is almost part memoir as I use my own life experiences in the hopes it will help others who are going through something similar.
The Badass Manifesto was born out of a rough year, 2015. I had to decide, would I let it break me or do I embrace who I am and tell everyone to go to hell? I chose the latter. It’s kinda my default.
It’s not so much other people’s expectations of the book that bothers me, rather my own. There’s an element of Imposter Syndrome at work here,
but I keep reminding myself why I’m writing this book. To help people.
I’ve written about feminism, mental health, bullying etc and every time I get great feedback so if I can help one person embrace themselves and empower themselves to make things happen then I’ll be happy.
I’ve been putting the book together for a while now but there’s still some work to do. I hope to have it published by the start of the summer.
If I don’t do it now, I’ll never do it. I’ll find an excuse, it’s so easy to do!
I’ve spent the last two days putting together social media sites and this blog and the anxiety of putting it out for public consumption has wiped me out.
A Badass takes care of themselves, so I’m going to indulge in some self care for the rest of the evening.
Have a great day/night fellow Badasses!
