Afraid To Ship

Been writing this blog since 2008 or so.  Had the content of the book since 2011: “IT’s Lost Art of Software Engineering”.  Printed a Hard Copy of the book in 2012.  Haven’t published / “shipped” ever.  “Waiting for Godot” was a faster read than the publication of my own book.

What am I afraid of? Success? Income? Adulation? Public Notice that I did something?

Or “Failure”?

How can it be Failure if I actually published a book that I wrote on my own?  Does it matter whether tens or tens of thousands actually buy and / or read it?  Or am I just Afraid because I’m afraid?
