Must Not Fail – prompt by the Daily Post

Must Not Fail

What is the one thing at which you are the most afraid of failing?


I am most afraid of failing at my volunteer blog post writing. That would remind me of my first try at getting something entered into a contest and failing. The fear of failure is very strong within me. It really breaks me down and it is hard getting up after a failure especially with my writing which means so much to me.

About Tessa

My name is Tessa Dean and I am an author and blogger. My writing styles vary and I love writing using prompts. I am also writing my first book, a Memoir entitled "Government Property - A Memoir of a Military Wife".  This is being published on the blog rather than the traditional way. I am putting up chapters as I go along. I keep my blog filled with useful content, stories, and poems. Plenty to keep you busy. I have also been interviewed by blogs and had other posts published on many different blogs. I also wrote a series of articles on Bipolar Disorder for IBPF (International Bipolar Foundation). I am in my 60’s and disabled which allows me plenty of time to write to my heart’s content. I live in southern New Jersey and have 3 children and 5 grandchildren. My oldest grandchild is a Sargent in the United States Marine Corps.

    The only real failure is not trying at all. We all fall down and learn the lesson to get back up quickly.:)

      I am still learning that lesson, but by posting all this stuff whether fiction or my real life is toughening my skin and making failure a thing of the past. I am getting there. I am on blog post two for them now.
