In order to help Legends of Localization grow, we gotta get our books into real bookstores. I’ve been terrified of this task for months because it’s new territory that I know nothing about. This always happens when I’m faced with something new like this: I get scared and put it off, then I push through the terror and get it done, and eventually it’ll become a normal thing that I’m not scared of anymore. Pushing through the terror is the reason I’m not afraid to host a stream anymore. I’ve also gotten more used to cold emailing people to request something.
And as I was writing this post, I explained to Mato how I was feeling about it, and gave me some advice that his father gave him:
If you’re feeling scared of something, instead of avoiding it, attack it. Then you become the threat. And you don’t have to worry about it anymore.
Okay! With that in mind, here I go…!
