…It’s a new day, and I’m feelin’ gooooood!
Thank you to those of you who have acknowledged the blog, some here, some via FaceBook messages and some personal notes. I LOVE that you are reading, and that you like what I’m sharing.
So… I wanted to tell you a little more of my journey. I said the other day that this wasn’t my first story, it was the first of my endeavors that had an opportunity. One of the WINNER prizes from NaNoWriMo was 5 free copies of my ‘NaNo’ book once it’s ready, then I can choose distribution methods. That was a draw that made me want to work a little harder, and I gotta tell ya…. so far all I have so far is the proof copy… but…
Holding that BOOK in my hands… seeing MY NAME on the cover, I still can’t get over that exhilaration! If something happened that no more copies were ever made – but that’s NOT GONNA HAPPEN!!!! – I WROTE A BOOK!
I was so excited when Gene called to tell me to look at my email, that he’d sent me something! When I saw the picture of the book, knowing that it arrived, that it was REAL.., I was squealing! I called my boss and told her to come see what I had – ‘is it a baby, a puppy, what?’
Well…. NO! But wait… IT IS MY BABY!!!
And like a proud Mama I can’t wait to show off my baby!
One of the comments made about all of this was a bit bittersweet… My mom and dad WOULD be proud. My Mama loved to read – she would read anything and I know she would have loved to be part of this. And Dad, he’d just be bragging to anyone who would listen. I will tell you that if you knew them, as you read what I write you will “see them” in my words… And there may be some of YOU – just ask my friend JMac! ha!!! There’s a lot of me. My friend Lynne who is helping me leaves me notes in the margins “Babs, THIS IS SO YOU!”
I think I love that!
Thank you for sharing this journey with me…
