Blood, Sweat and the Big O

I’ve always wanted to be an author. I’ve toyed with writing for quite some time but never in my life did I imagine I would get this kind of opportunity.

When I was first asked to contribute to “The Sin Circus” – I asked the author who set it all up, Rachel, if she was joking. My first thought was why me, I’m a nobody. Then when it became more real, my musings ran more along the line of - what if I wasn’t good enough. How do you know if you’re good enough?

I pushed everything I was feeling away and just wrote my piece and hoped for the best. I then sent it off, while closing my eyes, and waited.

When I received it back with all the edits, my heart literally sank to the floor in a crushed and broken heap. I’m not gonna lie, there were tears, and FYI – I’m not a pretty crier. My story was definitely not good enough, I wasn’t good enough. I considered giving up on the story and my dreams of becoming a published author right then and there. I closed the document and refused to look at it again. I went pretty radio silent for a few days and it didn’t go unnoticed. I received encouragement and a firm kick in the ass from several of the group.

Well, when I looked at the edits the second time, I could see where all the suggestions were coming from and why it needed so much work. I pushed my headphones on and knuckled down. I primped, polished and reworded everything that sucked… I mean everything that didn’t work ;) It took a few days but I did it, then sent it back.

It came back again and had more edits. Well… I have to say, I may have cried again. It was somewhat easier going through it the second time. I did everything I needed to. Found a few more issues and corrected those as well and sent it back.

Finding out it was ready for the proofer had me jumping for joy. It was good enough. It had passed the high level of scrutiny and this was really happening. My story was definitely going to be published. Everything from here on out was just small details.

The whole experience. I loved it. I loved the circus theme, it was different but in a good way. This was my first sex scene, first ménage as well as my first story that will be published. It’s a lot of firsts. The whole experience was like popping my author cherry. It was uncomfortable, emotional and a little painful at first, but as time went on, it was easier, smoother and more pleasurable. And right now – I’m pretty much reaching the climax. That’ll be the day the Book goes live.

I’m so thankful I got to be a part of this anthology and that I got to work with these ladies. I hope y’all enjoy the book.
