The bad news is this WRITING 101 challenge has been (close to) a complete bust (I have managed to get a challenge or two completed, but not much more). The good news however – is that I’m close enough to taste the self publisher I will use to print my book, Passing Through. The extensive amounts of time and energy I have spent on this (gy-normous – please don’t tell me it’s not a word) detail have been seismic. Who? How? Why? What package? Geez!
Anyway, things are picking up. Fast. I am being interviewed by blog talk radio this week (can you believe?) and I will have the contract by next week. Then comes soooo much: cover design, internal formatting, photos to be added in the middle, bio, blurbs on back cover (hi Mimi!), book photo of me (yikes), final galleys, etcetera.
I am enamored, excited, nervous – you name it, I feel it! There is an aliveness to putting my ass on the line that little else rivals. Everything I do, even minor daily activities, is filled with a sense of purpose, depth and joy. Yoga, food shopping, phone calls. An energy that leaves no space for nonsense. No time. No interest. No need. I am enlivened, filled with the passion of a message delivered. Today, just today – is unlimited!
