Communion Of Dreams

So far…

Well, promotion so far has been rather lack-luster. Or perhaps just no one is bothering to give me any feedback.

That’s one of the big fears that any author has – being ignored. I know from countless essays/diaries/posts/columns that I have written for newspapers and the web that my anxiety about this is useless, and usually unwarranted. Unwarranted, because my writing is usually fairly widely read, even if that isn’t obvious to me at first. Useless, because there’s nothing you can do about it anyway.

As I mentioned previously, I know that it takes a while for this sort of thing to pick up momentum. My Paint the Moon project (which came from Communion – you’ll find it in chapter 9) just sort of stumbled along for two months before hitting the big time. And I am constantly getting comments from people about a column I wrote for the newspaper weeks after the fact. My ego lives in the immediate now – everyone else seems to exist in the distant past. Ah well.
