The very first thing I did when we found out I was pregnant with our second child was to call Renee, then my parents, then all my friends. I couldn’t help it. I know some people wait for months to tell others, and we did wait with our first, but this time I was just too darn excited.
I am the same way with my writing. The minute I get a new idea, I feel the urge to tell someone. And as soon as I begin writing the first magical pages, I am dying to have someone read them. Lately, however, I have been feeling that, at least with writing, that may not be the best move.
With my last two stories, I started out with so much excitement and was writing up a storm, only to have the momentum mysteriously die soon after someone had read the first pages. So I am beginning to wonder, am I letting my fledgling idea out into the world too soon?
What do you think?
