Setback

Well, it shall be alive soon. I hope. Ha ha.

Right now my biggest worry about it are my author and book platforms. The IT guy that I was counting on ended up becoming ill. He apologized for his lack of get-go and he did just get a new job, but I’m hoping that we jump on this soon. I’ve emailed him ideas and talked to him on facebook a few times, but so far nada.

That’s the only thing I hate about relying on people that it sometimes no matter how well intentioned people can be, in the end, they can be rather unreliable. Hoping this issue is resolved soon, though, because I know I’m eager for it to be done and I couldn’t do it without his help. I know. I tried, and it looked terrible.

Yet I’ve been trying to get over my plateau of asking for help. I’ve always had a hard time with it and not because I am being proud or stubborn. It’s simply because I don’t want to trouble someone or ask someone for help and be a burden to them.

My character Calliope suffers the same problem.

Have you ever had that issue? And if so, do you still do or is it something you’ve grown out of?

Daily Prompt: It’s Friday, I’m in Love

My first crush happened when I was twelve. I fell in love with a guy (who I will call Bruce for all intensive purposes). I admired him from afar, and I was always afraid to approach him. I remember one time in fourth grade he had poked me and made me giggle, but I hadn’t done anything because he had a girlfriend. It was so frustrating. Especially in sixth grade when my crush for him rose to levels I didn’t think bearable. I used to think he was the most beautiful person alive and I’d never be able to get over him. Well, to this very day he still crosses my mind, sometimes, so I guess I was partially right.
