OH MY GOSH! I DID IT!

OH.MY.GOSH! I did it, guys! I FINALLY wrote a story! I wrote it from start to finish! I didn’t over think it, I didn’t over plan. I just wrote. I can’t believe it. I have been dreaming about writing a story for more than 25 years, and I FINALLY did it!

All of these years I have been thinking that I wanted to write YA stories, which I still do. However, since having a child, my eyes have been open to the world of children’s books. I had always had the idea in the back of my head, but never pursued it. My father ALWAYS told me I should, and I never thought much about it. Until now!

Since my daughter has taken such an interested in books, I wanted to use my talent for writing to bond together. I wanted to write something parents could enjoy while reading to their children. I wanted to share the joy of words with parents and children everywhere! There is no better feeling than having your child snuggle up against you and ask for you to read a book! And what better book to read than one I wrote! HA!

I am so proud of myself, and over the moon with excitement! I am not sure where this journey will lead, but I’m excited to see where God takes this!

Thank you everyone for your support as I have vented in the past! I came close to giving up my dream of being a writer, but you all encouraged me to keep going. And for that I am eternally grateful!

  1. What a great accomplishment! I look forward to hear about it and following your process. I have a finished YA drafted manuscript, but am in need of some inspiration to do something with it. Thanks for sharing your journey! One thing that has helped me in the past is being a part of an SCBWI. (Society of Childrens Book Writers and Illustrators) Check their website out and see if there is one near your location. These meetings have been really inspiring in the past for me and it also may help you learn about the publishing world and maybe you can meet an illustrator who could contribute if publishing is a goal. Best wishes!
