Hush The Demons

I don’t do a lot of reblogs here, but this is so beautiful that I just had to share it. Dan Alatorre is one of the most positive, encouraging, supportive bloggers out there, and this single paragraph from him says so much about finding the courage to share our work with the world.

I think some of the best novels of our time, some of the most unique and interesting works, will never see the light of day – never get out of a drawer or computer somewhere – because of this. I know it, in fact. I’ve seen some of them. It’s like hiding the Mona Lisa. And if you ever doubt your talent, know this: at least you had the GUTS to take it out of the drawer and show it to the world. That makes it better than the “masterpieces” in the drawer, because to be unread is to not exist.

Author: A.J. Goode

I am a romance novelist, single mother of three, and a high school lunchlady. To be completely honest, I have no idea which of those jobs is the most rewarding and which is the biggest challenge. I love them all. I write romance novels about the kind of people who might pass me on the street every day. My characters are often hurting in some way, and need to learn to trust others in order to heal themselves. I also blog about trying to focus on writing, and about my day-to-day experiences in small-town America. I write about life. The good, the bad, and the just plain odd.
