2018 was a fabulous year as a new author. A year ago in January, my anxiety and worry about how would people react to my writing was high. I was in the last few months before publishing, That is Not Me, and totally questioning whether this journey to become an author would be a good one. I never expected what would happen once the book was published and I have been on a tremendous ride since sharing my story.
I knew by the end of 2018 that the pace I was going at, in trying to promote my book, was draining me. I decided I needed to slow down for the first few months of 2019 and hopefully find some time to work on the second book I have started to write. I am so glad I made that decision. A tired body needs time to gain energy and a tired brain needs time to rest before creating new words on a page.
My quest to share my first book with others will start again in the spring. I drive a lot better on dry roads and look forward to visiting with those interested in hearing my story starting in March.
