I Need To Admit Something

I want to admit something. It doesn’t make me unique or different. A lot of you understand what I’m about to say. I live with a ton of self-doubt.

Why has it taken me almost nine years, really coming up on ten, to finish my novel? Here’s a hint, it has nothing to do with my other job. And, it shouldn’t take this long.

It’s mostly due to the fact I have a lot of bouts of self-doubt and fear. There are times (it feels like many) where I suffocate from these feelings of being a fraud. It hits me in all areas of life. But that’s my excuse for taking so long to finish this book.

This documenting of my journey is helping. But I also try and live by an idea I once heard from author JK Rowling. Write for yourself. Sage advice.

(Oh, I need to say this because I’m trying an experiment. Listen to the podcast, and you’ll understand when I say toy train set collecting.)

I'm blessed. Most of my professional career, almost 20 years, I've spent as a journalist. Some of it was in print, a little in television, but most of it in radio. I've worked with some wonderfully talented producers and directors in those two decades. It would take pages to elaborate on all of the experiences I've had as a reporter, producer and host. Needless to say they include opportunities talking with leaders of state, religious leaders, civic leaders, writers, artists and entertainers. The last couple decades have been a lot of fun. But, the next couple decades will be far better.
