|I may not look like a JRT,|
but wait till you see me jump!
First the strengths:
I am really good at learning new things. It's almost a passion, really. I love to discover the new.
Perhaps I have a little of my Jack Russell Terrier mix's drive for novelty. :)
I'm also committed to finishing what I start, almost to the point of obsessiveness. And coupled with that is my drive to do it right the first time. So I am willing to work hard for what I want. Sometimes that drives the people around me a little crazy. (See aforementioned comment about my JRT mix.)
Now the weaknesses:
I hate, with a fiery burning passion, promoting myself. It's not that I don't believe in my work--I do--it's that I have been uncomfortable since childhood with being the center of attention. Too much eye contact is unnerving. And even though on the internet, no one knows you're a dog, it still feels weird and wrong to attract attention to myself.
So it's been a challenge marketing and promoting my debut novel, to say the least. What has felt comfortable, is making relationships with book lovers all over the net, and that has taken me full circle to the exclamation marks in my title.
