A couple of days ago I reached 200 blog followers and I just wanna say:
HOLY CRAP, THANK YOU GUYS SO MUCH!
Every single person who shows an interest in my craziness helps to keep me going. We all have days where we doubt ourselves. Question what the hell we’re doing with our lives. But as my audience grows, I feel that writing really is who I am. It’s a legacy that’s beginning to grow bigger than myself.
With each book, each post, each interaction with other word nerds, I grow more amazed at how awesome it is to have fallen into this profession. It wasn’t something I set out to do. I like to let life lead me where it will. Allow the wind to blow me in the right direction, so to speak.
I have a lot of projects moving forward: Two book deals for early next year and numerous opportunities to share with other writers. I’m not stingy with my success. I’m also not a bestselling author, yet. The key word is yet. Even so, whenever I catch a break, I feel the need to aid others who are in the same boat I am.
The writing community has embraced me without question. (Not entirely sure why haha I’m small potatoes) It is extremely encouraging. If there’s anything I can do to help a fellow author, I am always open to answering questions and sharing resources.
You guys are the best! Writers and reader alike!!
