Through writing this book, I learned the importance of having others around to believe in the project and nudge you even when you don't feel like writing.
Developing the daily writing habit of making something really big (like a 300+ page book), changed me. I've been a blogger for years and a regular collector of stories through scrapbooking and journaling. All of this writing is like an addiction and suddenly, all of the pipe dreams of writing books seems possible. (Maybe.)
- YA titles
- A book about adoption to give hope and peace to parents
- Picture books
- Middle grade novels
- More professional titles
However, I'm realizing being a writer has little to do with publishing and a whole lot to do with putting words on the page. I'm a writer not because I'm published, but because I collect words in order to make sense of the world.
It's about time I document this little adventure.
