At Least For Today!

saying for self esteem'happinessThe 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!

      Thanks Mark – I’m excited. It’s taken a while to get here, but it’s time to move forward and get this party started, or perhaps finished would be the better word.
      Stay tuned…

      I’m looking forward to the inevitable ups and downs, although the final product, holding my own book in my hands, will be a most exciting experience. Thanks for your good wishes.
