Once there was a little document who lived all alone in a WIP folder. After several years, the folder grew and housed several other little documents.
“One day I will become an ebook,” said the youngest document who was smart, brave, and fell within in a specific genre. “No!” shouted the others. “Stay here on the computer, where it is safe and warm, for it is ugly and mean out there in the world. People will judge you and rate you.”
But the young document persisted, replying, “Although I am safe and secure on the computer, I am not happy here. I must get out into the world, for I believe in constructive criticism.”
And so, the Master of the keyboard, acknowledging the little document’s frustration, turned it into an ebook.
“I’m alive!” shouted the ebook, who felt very much satisfied with the ultimate decision. “I’m being read.”
Be brave, dear writers, be brave.
Or at least let your document be brave for you.

Yesterday I released my first ebook and am wondering what took me so long! It’s a great high, this experience, and although caffeine might be playing a part in all of this, I cannot express the feeling of satisfaction when a friend (or acquaintance) grasps the “message” of the story; the message that we writers spend time crafting and scrutinizing over. Not to mention the editing (Oh, the editing).
Even better is when we actually inspire the reader…in some small way.
Say it. Write it. Publish it.
And, if you’re so inclined, sip on a cup of coffee while you’re at it.
