Well, life has changed for everyone around the world, really, even if only in small ways. My life has changed a lot. We’ll just say the pandemic gave me the push I needed to get off my backside and do something real with my life, instead of coasting along.
I had a lot of dreams when I was younger. I lost most of them with the death of someone important to me and, let’s just say, life has not turned out how I had hoped it would. However, life also gave me a lot to work with, a blessing in disguise so to speak. Still, always looking for the positive, I’ve decided to turn this into a new opportunity for myself. I’m following a new dream.
I’m going to be an author. Not just a writer, as I’ve been writing stories for years now, but an actual author with books for sale.
Now, it’s going to be an adventure, as I’ve been at it for just over a week now, and I have so much to learn. I found some amazing resources that have helped a lot and given me the courage to try. I already have some stories online on a page for writers, but my style has changed so much that I leave them up for nostalgia. I wouldn’t say the writing itself is all that good, but that was work I did years ago.
I’ll share my triumphs and failures, my good days and bad, who helped and where I learned useful information, and what I discover that I didn’t even know I needed to know. For instance, I’m interested in self-publishing. I will have to wear many hats, including editor and proofreader, cover designer, publisher, and so on. Some jobs I may get help with, others I’ll learn more in depth. Either way, I’ll share it all here.
So, welcome to my journey, and I hope you enjoy yourself while you’re with me. Ready to dream big dreams again?
I’ve been writing stories for myself for years. Now, I’m a published author. No genre is off limits, though I have some favorites.
