I have control issues. It’s the only way to explain why I freak out when things don’t go according to plan. It’s the reason I have been a pest to the people I’ve entrusted with certain parts of this production/marketing process for my novel. It’s the reason that I have to count to ten and take deep breaths before dealing with things that don’t happen or are cancelled.
I understand now why I am an indie author, because God knew I couldn’t handled turning my stuff over with no say in how it turns out in the end. I don’t care how much of an advance … ok, that’s not exactly true.
Anyway, I just wanted to reveal my control issues to the world, so people will be aware of why I react the way I do when things go wrong. I am working on it, but if anyone has any tips on how to control (haha) my control issues, I would truly appreciate it.
Do you have control issues? How do you deal with them in this unpredictable and out of control world we live in?
