habdabs. Now I know you're thinkin', "What on earth is she talkin' about??"
I'll say it again! Habdabs. Isn't that a funny word to say? That is one cool word. (Go ahead, giggle, laugh, snicker, cackle, I'll wait!) It means fear, apprehension, the heebie-jeebies!
We all have fear in life. Especially writers. We put our heart and soul into our work only for someone (those precious CP's and betas, gotta love 'em, MWAH!) to tear it down. For our own good. I'm thinkin' I must be a loony tune to set myself up for all that grief. I know that some of you are nodding at my loony tune remark. *shakes head*
But we learn from our helpers. I like to call them my helper bees. They show me where I'm missing the mark. They nudge me in the right direction.
So shake those habdabs! (What a bodacious word!)
