Babbling on...

As Babble inches ever closer to the end, and we get ourselves geared up for the previews, I can't shake this weird feeling of dread.

This is a big thing for me; it's the culmination of a lot of work and the chance to get a story out there that I've had kicking around my head for an obscenely long time. Because it's been a part of my life for so long, I'm determined to get it right, but there's a part of me that feels as if I'm compromising, that I'm not doing the characters and the story justice, but there's also a part of me that has to wonder if people will like it...

This is not going to turn into a huge "love me, love me" post. I've had positive reactions about my work before, I know that I'm getting better as a writer with each piece I do; I'm learning from my mistakes, as any writer worth their salt should. I have enough ego to get my work out there in the first place, but not enough to believe that I'm The Greatest Writer In The World and you should all bow down before me (although, that will happen one day...).

Babble is my first full length work, and it's harder to let something like this go off to face the public, than a five page SF short. Babble is me staking my claim, if you will, a declaration that says I'm here and I'm ready to take on the world.

Babble is a first step on a new path for me.

Or at least, I hope it is.
