It’s been an incredible journey, writing this blog. I have gone from feeling at odds with myself, uncertain on who I am and feeling lost within my life to feeling whole, complete and safe in the knowledge that I am better than I give myself credit for. The imperfect me is perfectly happy, sometimes by choice and sometimes by default.
Since starting this blog just over a year ago I have grown, pressed forward and matured. I have made peace with myself in many ways, and the lack of recent posts reflects that.
Towards the end of last year, I was invited to have my books published by two publishing companies. The business mind in me told me to stop and look into it all first so, being me I researched the life out of the companies in question, my book and a career in writing.
Since forever ago I have wanted to write, I’ve taken courses, gained qualifications yet never put the time or effort into making something of it so over the way I began to write lazily, very much write how I speak kinda lazy. I gained many bad habits, so I decided to take another course, two actually, both online and now they are guiding me with writing the stories I’ve had in my mind for a very long time.
I’m also working with two very talented people, an illustrator, and a counselor. Both of whom are eager for the books to come to fruition. I hope the kids they are written for are half as excited.
In the meantime, as my agent and I work out various schedules and details I am enjoying this new venture. Making a new start on this blog was advised, but as I have shared so much personal stuff here, I haven’t deleted it all, I’ve merely shifted it to another blog, I’m going insane, already!
I hope this blog will become a place to share ideas, tips and meet other writers, beginners and established.
