Am reading: The Art of Asking by Amanda Palmer
I recently had to "ask." I needed some information for a story I couldn't get on my own. I LOATHE bothering people. I hate it. Truly.
But . . . I asked. I sent out five emails.
Were happy to help.
I thanked them.
The three who ignored me?
Well, I didn't die of embarrassment. So I decided it is what it is.
Point is, I stepped out . . . and I'm glad I did. :D
