What if people hate my blog.
What if no one likes me.
What if no on shows up to my author signing.
What if someone hates chocolate.
What if I never sell my book.
What if they tell me not to quit my day job.
What if they like me too much.
What if they reject me too many times.
What if I only sell 10 copies.
What if I sell a gazillion copies.
What if the editor doesn't like the edits I made.
What if they liked my book and then hated it.
What if I get a one star review.
What if I'm the next JK Rowling.
There are several what if's in life. Several in a writers life especially. However the emotion remains the same. The stress creeps up on you and your own mind becomes your worst enemy. At the end of the day can you do anything to change someone's mind? No (and don't go thinking you can give them a twinkie and make it better), so if you can't fix it, don't worry about it. Regardless if you're already successful or trying to make in the big bad writing world there will always be what's ifs. It's all in how you handle them.
Don't be a victim of the what ifs.
