Stretching the Comfort Zone
Writing has been an adventure of discovery for me. One of the biggest hurdles I’ve had is learning how to engage in social media. A wise person once wrote, “The biggest rewards in life are found outside of your comfort zone.” No truer words have been spoken. So when author Ophelia Bell invited me to participate in a Facebook Valentine’s day giveaway, I jumped at the chance. Believe me, this was waaaaay outside of my comfort zone! But, I was determined to do it because I knew I would learn so much and meet so many interesting people. When Valentine’s day came, I was so nervous, I couldn’t see straight. But my fellow authors talked me through it and I came up with games and questions to challenge and entertain my followers. I learned so much about myself and my comfort zone that day. In the end, I gave away 4 books and 1 Starbucks gift card. My books traveled to Pennsylvania, Los Angeles and as far away as New Zealand! So here’s to moving outside of your comfort zone, I highly recommend it to everyone!
