Shaking in my Boots

This Saturday I will be rubbing elbows with 20 other authors as we battle to churn out a short story (500 words…pray for me!) in 90 minutes.

I’ve been talking about it for a while now…mostly because I’m nervous with a desire to be brilliant in the face of already amazing people.

So today I was thinking I might need this:

And a little of this…

I love remembering that! This is a good one too…

Such great qualities! And this…

There are no words. If you’ve ever pursued a goal that struck fear into your heart, you get this heart and soul.

Oh, Harriet. If only you knew what you did! Thank you for your fearless example of great womanhood…

I try to remember this everyday.

Some opportunities are more challenging than others, but I know this weekend will be lots of fun. I’ll keep you posted on the results of my try at brilliance. 😉

    Good luck and have fun! No matter how you compare to the others I know you will do your best and that, in itself, will be amazing!

      I am realizing that the experience itself is more than worth it to me. Thanks Danielle, for the love and encouragement!
