I decided to share my new venture of being an author with all my friends and family. My main method of sharing this news was through the creation of a facebook page. I was trying to choose the best wording for the post to introduce the new page. I chose the word venture in my post. The dictionary.com definition of venture is an undertaking involving uncertainty as to the outcome, especially a risky or dangerous one, or a business enterprise or speculation in which something is risked in the hope of profit. I thought this was the perfect word to use because pouring your heart and thoughts into written word is an exciting and rewarding experience but then to put it out there for others to critique is another story. The undertaking being the writing of the book, the outcome would be whether or not the book is received with positive reviews and that is uncertain. I have definitely begun a new venture.
