Let the journey begin!
Updated: May 3, 2021
Hi everyone! Welcome to my blog, A Writer’s Journey. I’ve dreamt of being a published author for a long time. Until recently I had no idea what that meant or how I’d even go about accomplishing it. What would I write? How would I do it? I had no clue. And now I know, I also had no true appreciation for what it meant to write a multi-chapter, multi-character story, even a short one. It’s a process that times time, dedication, and commitment. And it’s a process that can often leave you wondering if it’s all worth it. Especially if you’re new to fictional story telling.
I’m happy to say I’ve finished my first book. I’m hoping to publish it in late summer of 2021. I’ll keep you posted on updates and details. I know it seems like a long time from now, but it’s a haunted Christmas story and timing is everything. I’ve also started my second book, which totally blows my mind!
I’ll talk more about my books in future blogs, but let’s just say my first book might feel familiar to many of you, like a new chapter to an old classic. As one early reader described it to me: it’s a prequel to the Ebenezer Scrooge story.
I invite you to follow me on this journey as I discover what it takes to become a published author, what writing has taught me, and what it means to take that first step to making a dream reality.
I still don’t know where this journey will take me, but I’m hoping it takes me to amazing places, even if it’s only within the stories that I create. As Albert Einstein once said, “Imagination is more important than knowledge.” As a fictional writer this speaks to me, so let the journey begin! 😉
