It is officially 2014, and this is officially going to be my year! I love to read good books and I love to write amazing stories. For years I have been writing because I enjoy it and like most wannabe writers, completing and publishing a novel is on my bucket list. In 2011, my husband challenged me to complete the November 50,000 words in 30 days from www.nanowrimo.org. Well, I am happy to report that I wrote 60,000 words and walked into December with my head held high. Now you may be asking, “What did you do with it?” and the answer is nothing. This story is sitting on my desktop waiting to have the holes filled in, be revised, edited, and sent out into the world.
I’m not gonna lie, I think the process of publishing whether independent or trying to find representation is extremely intimidating. However, over the last two years I have followed and read some amazing books by amazing authors and I think to myself…if they can do it so can I! E. K. Blair, Jay Crownover, Natasha Boyd, and Colleen Hoover you ladies inspire me…
My only resolution for 2014 is to write a novel, revise it, have it edited (let’s be honest, I was a chemistry major in college and it’s going to need some professional help 🙂 ), and to figure out the world of self publishing. I am excited about this journey and for my friends and family who are supporting me…Thank you! I love you all!
Cheers!!! And here’s to following my dream….
