A Roller-Coaster Ride

Updated: 4 days ago

I might start charging admission for my friends who are riding the bumps and twists of my writing journey with me. They've seen me at my low points when I've been about to give up and they've seen me squeal with excitement at the possibility of a dream come true.

One thing that's stayed constant is the enthusiasm and cheerleading of my (fingers-crossed) future editor, Lisa. She's not only believed in my book but she's believed in me- as a person and as an author. We ran into each other recently at the LDSPMA conference in Provo, UT. Chatting with her and seeing her continued excitement for my novel was the highlight of my trip out here.

Writing can be hard, writing and submitting can be harder, and writing then waiting might just be the hardest. But I heard a wise person once say, "Good things come to those who wait." Thanks, Madame Curie. I'm going to trust you on this one and hold on tight.
