I'm Thinking....

Things are still rolling. I'm getting the first chapter of my book ready to ship to the publisher I met. I'm excited. It may take a while for her to read it but progress is progress. I didn't think i'd be doing anything like this so soon. I'm not even done editing.

This has all made me very happy. I have times when I get into my head a little too much and all I can do is think, think, think. I'm doing what I can to change it. When you've been doing something your whole life you can't just let it go. I'm definitely a thinker. I try to see situations from all angles. That could be a good thing but unfortunately it's hard for me to stop myself sometimes. I also spend too much time on the negative angle.

I'm a worrier too. That's not a good thing. I'm wondering how i'm going to deal with the publishing process. I probably won't have any fingernails left. I can see myself sitting, and thinking, and worrying. There's so much that goes into it all. I have to get myself to a place where I can deal with the waiting. Oh yeah, i'm also a bit impatient.

My spirits have definitely been lifted since I went to that publishing party. I won't allow myself to find anything to get too in depth about. My mood is much lighter. My book has been a part of my life for almost two years. It has actually helped me through some things. When I was sad, mad, happy, sad, or whatever, I would grab my pen and pad. I put my heart and soul into my book and I love it.

I'm really looking forward to this new phase of life. My goal is to make a living as a writer. I know that it is what I am. It would just be nice to make some money with this talent i've been given. I'm tired of the whole job thing. I need to have a career, and the one of my choice.

Wish me luck....

On another note.................How awesome is it that President Obama has received the Nobel Peace Prize?

Don't worry, it sounds like everything is moving along even faster than you had planned. If you have a publisher already interested before you are even done editing your book you are doing well.

Let go of the negative and do your best not to worry about the outcome of your new business venture. In the place your at right now alls these feelings and emotions could be expected.

Good luck, I can't wait to hear whatthe publisher thinks of your work.

It's been a while since I've come through and I was wondering what's been up with you lately. I am glad that new and good are on your horizon.

it's extremely awesome that barack obama has been recognized and honored and such an inspiring manner. maybe now we can get lars larsen to shut up. maybe...

also, good luck with your publishing thing and book career. i have to end up getting another publisher. unfortunately i was dropped from my last publisher in december '08 due to unforseen circumstances - so lucky me, i get to go thru the entire nerve-wrecking process all over again. lol.

GOD bless.
