Several months back, I had a dream that that one of my upcoming publications with Daily Science Fiction had gone out and readers were unanimously agreed that it sucked as hard as a story could possibly suck, and then some.
The story went out for real this morning, so I woke up full of everyone’s-going-to-hate-it paranoia thanks to that stupid dream. Much to my relief, the first reader comment on DSF’s Facebook page was “not bad.” Irrational me had to refrain from dancing around the room chanting, “It’s not bad! I don’t totally suck!”
Stupid anxiety dreams.
