I know you’re not really supposed to do this kinda thing on your blog…being all honest and out there and everything but hey, I have no problem breaking the rules…I’m all about being a groundbreaking rebel.
So what’s the big deal? I am scared to death! Yeah, seriously petrified.
The Workshop I’m giving is:
a. The first class I’ve ever given…and that scares the bejebbers out of me!
b. Not selling nearly as well as I had hoped!!
c. Not many have even registering for the giveaway…don’t people flock to freebies???
d. Scaring the bejebbers out of me! Oh, wait…I already said that part. Well, it bears saying twice.
I don’t even know why it’s bothering me so much but it is, right down to my core. I know that sounds all whiny and everything but it’s tough, going out on a limb and putting yourself out there and seeing little response. It just freaks me out a little bit.
Don’t get me wrong; I am still excited about giving the workshop and I still believe, with all my heart, that this relatively new idea of giving Micro-Workshops is a really fantastic idea. I think it fills a niche that the online art workshop world that has been sorely lacking…affordable and compact workshops. I don’t just think it’s a good idea, I KNOW it’s a good idea.
I’m just worried that maybe I chose a bad time to schedule it, with so many other classes starting around this same time.
Isn’t that what we do when we’re facing a fear…we start second thinking our choices or doubting ourselves. Yeah, that’s all I’m doing…just fighting off a bit of stage fright. I’m sure I’ll be fine in a day or two.
In the meantime, keep spreading the word…and if you haven’t registered to win a free spot in the workshop, be sure to go and do it now, HERE.
Thanks for all the encouragement and to those of you that have signed up already…I appreciate it more than you know! (And thanks for letting me put my fears out there for all of you to see.)
I leave you with this great quote from Dina Wakley (I just came across it on her blog), “I don't fuss over pages that aren't working. I just say, "eh" and turn the page. They'll make more paper...there's always another fresh, blank sheet to work on. It's okay to fail, they can't all be masterpieces. From the failures come artistic growth...and I love that.”
Peace & Love,
