I think you guys probably have them too - trying to control all the things about your writing that you simply cannot control. Getting an Agent. Going on Sub. Finding a publisher.
If you are like I was, everyday a small new baby grey hair would ping into existence on your scalp...proof of the horrible things you were doing to your body. Stress kills, you know. And I'm pretty convinced that writers stress more than ANYONE ELSE IN THE ENTIRE WORLD.
I don't even like myself right now. Because I'm doing it. I'm trying to control things that can't be controlled.
And until I get myself back under control (i.e., only worrying about things I *CAN* control) I'm hurting myself and my chances for the future. So this is JKB, asking you:
do you have control issues?
If so, do you want to sit by me? We can share some chocolate.
