Big steps, small shoes

In the last 7 months, I have written a 71,000 word novel, gotten healthier and achieved a level of joy and happiness that I didn’t think was possible.

The best part?  I did it myself.  I found the motivation and followed through.  I brought myself to this point and it is empowering.  Of course, there were those along the way that have been supportive and positive about my journey, but ultimately I was the one that had to take those steps, make those changes and become who I believe I was always meant to be.  I’m still learning, growing and becoming that person.  I’ve reconnected with cherished friends and made some new friends along the way.

A couple of weeks ago after many, many edits, rewrites, read-throughs and advice from beta readers and others, I took the big step of submitting my manuscript to agents and publishers.  Since I’ve never published before, this was a big step for me.  Yay me for taking it.

I expect rejection.  I will learn from it.  I won’t give up.  I will continue to stay positive and hope for the best.  This is my own personal journey.  I may be wearing small shoes in this writing world, but I’m taking just as big a step as other writers out there.  We all start somewhere right?


Success! You're on the list.
