August for me will be spent paying respect to the authors of Wattpad. That's right! Thirty-one days, thirty-one authors!
Firstly, I want to thank each and everyone one of you in advance for taking that leap of faith and doing what's so difficult to do as an author. Write the first word. If you hadn't, where would you be now? Take a second and think about it. You may have multiple books now and be helping others on Wattpad take that first step. You may even have self-published! Congratulation! You've no doubt worked hard and are an inspiration to others. You are to me.
For me, it was tough to take that step and begin writing. Self-doubt plagued me. I knew whatever I wrote wouldn't be accepted. I'm not good enough. People don't want to read what I have to say.
Ultimately, it was you, the authors and readers of Wattpad, that took the time and helped me be better. I've got a long way to go to get where I want, but what if I'd never considered that first step?
Life is short. Take a chance on yourself. Write!
At the end of the month, I will open the book to everyone that would like to recommend their favorite writers. After all, you do have more than one, right?
