Yesterday, in an attempt to conquer my fears, I went on the radio. I’ve done it once before and hoped that the sinking feeling in my stomach and knocking knees wouldn’t make a return engagement. I was pleased that while I did have some butterflies, this time I wasn’t so weak in the knees that I could barely carry myself into the studio.
I joined some rather esteemed folks on the local public radio program “Up to Date” for The Book Doctors segment. Doesn’t that sound fancy? Actually, we just give our book recommendations and hope that people will call in and share theirs. The host asked if any books were “hot” right now and I mentioned 50 SHADES OF GREY because I hear about it everywhere. Because I was aware it started out as Twilight fan fiction, somehow the book made it onto my “suggested reading list.” Ha! Actually, I’ve only read excerpts so I can’t offer my doctoral opinion yet.
I really enjoyed myself and I’m glad that I did something out of my comfort zone.
Have you conquered any fears lately?
