I’ve been working on a project for over a year now. I’ve been pushing myself to write a book. Or something close to a book. The project went into a coma for quite some time. However, I decided to breathe life back into the “book” and now lo and behold — “It is finished”.
Almost finished. I asked some literary inclined friends to have a look at it and give constructive feedback. I still need to proofread the whole thing too. And write an author’s note, acknowledgment, or —
HOMAYGASH, totoo na ba ito??? (Is this f’real???)
Really, I’ve been doing this project mostly because I wanted to prove something to myself — that I can come up with more than literary blog pieces. But now, I’m thinking about venturing to self-publishing. But are my stories good enough?
I get terrified thinking about it. But at the same time I’m all giddy and then —
And then I get terrified again.
I need help. I’ve got a lot of questions. Should I stick to eBook formats or should I try making physical copies, too? Will my faith and wallet allow me to do so?
This all feels surreal right now. I could back out any moment. Seriously.
But I seriously, seriously, seriously want to push through with this.
And write more once I’m through.
