It's the first Wednesday of the month ~ the day when members of the Insecure Writer's Support Group share their writing struggles and offer their encouragement and support to other members.

A few weeks back, I set something into motion that, come July, will mean something rather big shall happen...
I will no longer be a hybrid author.
Instead, everything I do will be a solely self-published proceeding. Asking for the rights back was a decision I agonised over and one that still gives me niggly butterflies of doubt on dark days. Overall, I think I took the right steps. I won't go into details of why it all happened, but suffice to say that I was hit pretty hard mentally and... Well, I hadn't had a full-blown panic attack in years, but finding myself on the end of one was almost enough to tip me over. Even thinking about it still tightens my chest, so I won't dwell too long. All I can do right now is wait and hope this has been the right choice.
Am I mildly terrified I'm setting myself up to fall on my face? Yeah, but casual anxiety has long since become a current state of being for me. But on the bright side, what with this whole ordeal, the house hasn't been this dust-free in years.
