I’ve blogged over at Diary of a Crafty Chica since 2003 and I still plan to keep it going strong – however, I’ve recently come to a very important decision.
Writing comes first.
At least when it comes to my free time. I’ve always dreamed of having a long term career as a novelist, and now that, by the grace of God, I’ve had two fiction books published, I have to work hard to keep the momentum moving.
Here’s a nugget of truth about being an author. It’s difficult to write, edit and sell your first book, but it is double hard to keep it going. New hurdles are established and you have to clear them to stay in the game. I write because I love to tell stories and deliver happy endings with messages that will make readers want to try something new. I’m making it my priority, I feel compelled to set everything else aside do go for it!
My mission for the next month: two novel outlines, two non-fiction book proposals! Yah!
More updates to come!Love & light,
