With one book ready to be edited and another 1/4 of the way done in its rough draft stages, I am closing in on being an actual published author. Of course, these things take time – mostly wasted time as I have trudged through the muck of fear and hesitation. Fear of what? I’m not exactly sure. All I know is when you’ve put as much of your soul into something, it’s totally paralyzing to think it might amount to nothing. That’s a ridiculous thing to paralyze you, however, since DOING nothing will amount to nothing.
I have found new wings in this writing adventure by deciding to bypass the search for an agent (at least for now) and a publisher by going the route of self-publishing through createspace.com. To motivate me as I write out my rough draft for After Life, I have created a cover for it, and I look at it whenever I feel a little bit like lagging.
At any rate, here’s to a new author page, two soon-to-be published books, and new beginnings. Thanks for coming with me on the journey!
