A great couple of things have happened that have officially pulled me from the quagmires of despair into totally and absolute joy.
I’ve finally taken the plunge and contacted a group about self-publishing my book. IT’S OFFICIAL!
You must be like “You’ve been saying that for the longest time. What’s so different now?”
The difference is pushing the button.
Since a couple of months ago, I have been on fence about really writing. Work and getting my Masters got in the way of everything and it made me question whether I really could do this. Be a writer? Barely had time to get myself out of the bed in time for work!
Then about two weeks ago, I randomly decided to read the first novel-length piece I ever wrote. And this may sound really self-absorbed but I couldn’t put my own work done! It wasn’t that I didn’t what was going happen but it was the story that kept me captivated. And I can be my own worst critic! But I honestly thought to myself, that wasn’t half bad.
Then I got to thinking, if I am able to write something that I can honestly enjoy reading several years later, I might have something there. So today I took the plunge! I contacted my book publishing adviser and set the official timeline. EEEEKK!
And I push the other button that I had been putting off for a while – my Indiegogo funding page. The publishing world has now allowed others to self-publish and take control of their own work. It is my wish to do the same. I’ll discuss more about my goals for funding in another post but you can take a look at it if you want a sneak peak! Bring My Novel To Life!!
But honestly I can’t tell you how siked (yes, I still use that word) I am about this entire thing. I started officially writing just about three years ago. Finished my first novel-length piece in a couple of months. Finish my current novel in 5 months and I still have much more to give!
Stay tuned and thanks for your continued support! Your comments and well-wishes give me the mojo to continue!!
