The Creek Don’t Rise

I’m hesitant to use this word…tentative.

Definition: not certain, done without confidence or hesitant.

It can also mean provisional. The origin of the word, tentare, in Latin meant “to attempt”.

SotR free today only (Sept 19)

It actually reminded me of what my math teacher used to say at the end of every class. “Lord willing and the creek don’t rise…” Basically, we’ll make tentative plans to see each other tomorrow for another day of school. She never purported the end of the world, but just that we should be ready should our day not work out exactly as we had planned.

When I first decided to publish my book, I wasn’t entirely sure it was a good idea. It sounded exciting and my friend was really supportive. But there was (and still is) that small voice in my head that says otherwise.  Still, I was really curious about the process and the outcome, so I made tentative arrangements to have it published through Amazon and Smashwords. I’m glad my friend encouraged me to do so and put up with meeting me for coffee and going through the story….over and over and over and over… (you get the idea). It may not be a New York Times Bestseller, but the experience of writing and publishing was a fun one.
