Is taking a wrong turn or two, or three, really lost? And when I mean the wrong turn, I mean the scenic route that changes the destination a couple of times.
In 2016 I had a specific goal to write Magick, my debut novel. I had written a book before, but not to publication (that novel will never see the light of day, just sayin'). I invested in a writing coach to push me through the process to learn. Some days it was mental kicking and screaming, and other days, it just clicked.
My writing coach was perfect for me, a lot of 'ah-ha' moments. He didn't take any of my crap excuses. When I say excuses, I mean the standard: no time, distractions, and writer's block. Which, I learned for me, boiled down to poor preplanning and the need for accountability.
So what's my point here? I took the scenic path and found my stride along the way with bits of wisdom and knowledge (each is mutually exclusive, trust me). I've relaunched my series, The Unwanted Series. Magick, book one, was re-released with edits this past August, and Reign, book two, comes out at the end of October. In 1 year, I will have published all 3 books in this series, then moving onward to my next stories that I'm chomping at the bit to write.
My road is winding, and it's taken me some time to get my plan together, and now I'm here. This is my scenic route. Come join along for the ride, the view, and the laughs. This blog is my spot to be social, tell stories, talk about books, writing, events, and throw down some of my existential wisdom (or not). Let's turn toward the sun and ride!
