I'm writing a new book

So I’m writing a new book now.  It’s really coming along quickly.  This book is different, and I think right now that’s a good thing.  I think I need to branch out.  I’m still going to write the historicals and the contemporary paranormals, but I want to branch out to mainstream.  Women’s fiction to be exact.  I read so much of it now.  The book involves a heroine who is embarking on a career she knows zilch about and she’s struggling.  I’m taking her struggles personally because I’m having to talk to people in this field to understand it.  This is a good thing.  It’s bringing me into the character and making her very real to me.  I really hope I get it right.  

Getting it right is the thing that terrifies me more than anything else with writing.  The closer to release date, the more scared I become.  What if I described the process, event, whatever incorrectly?  What if a reader calls me out on it?  They’ll think I’m a loser, a fraud, a fake.  It’s nerve-wracking.  No one has ever called me out on something yet….but still I fear it.  It’s a very real possibility, especially with this book, so I have to get it right. 

On another note, I see that RWA has a mainstream chapter which is online.  I’m thinking of joining.  I’ve joined online RWA chapters in the past and never gotten much out of them.  I know that what you put into your chapter is what you will get out of it, whether it’s online or in person, and I never really put much into the online chapter that I was a part of.  So it’s my own fault.  Online takes more effort than in person.  To me anyway.
