Before I get started just let me say…thank you for joining me on this adventure. I’ll hopefully have enough sanity remaining to share the ins and outs of my experience. It’s been one heck of a trek, but an amazing ordeal nonetheless. I’m going to be honest on here and that may not always be pretty, but life isn’t always pretty either. I want you to experience everything I’ve gotten to, first hand, and some of that has definitely kept me on my toes.
I’d like to say that the opportunity to publish my first book has been a dream come true, but that’s just not the case. Don’t get me wrong. It’s been a completely surreal experience…just not an aspiration that I’ve had my entire life. Now, I know for some that this is something they have worked on for a long period of time and they’ve dreamt of the day that they would get their ‘pride and joy’ out on the shelves, but for me it was more of an enlightenment. (I’ll fill you in on my story some other time.)
With that said, this experience is going to give this time of year a whole new meaning for me. I’ve always loved Christmas time! The lights, the tree, the decorations, the presents, and oh, the paper! I have a little obsession with buying tons of wrapping paper and not using it because it’s too pretty. Anyways…the list could go on and on and on! You get the point. But see, now I’ll be able to add to its wonderment, its the time of year that my entire future was changed, in a way that was never imaginable. I’m excited. I’m nervous. And I’ll admit. I’m even a little scared. I even second guess myself all of the time. I can pensively say that all of my emotions are right on course, especially for this giant leap I’ve taken into the literary world!
So, I hope you enjoy my future ramblings…I tend to have a lot of them. To that end, join me on the crazy train and lets find out where this journey leads. Happy December!
