Finally, “It’s A Wrap”
I wrote my first novel during "NaNoWriMo" (National Novel Writing Month) in 2011. Since then, I've written four more and drafted two. I realized that I had to start on the road to publishing.
Did I have a plan? Yes, and sometimes no, I quit my ten-year volunteer gig. I took a leave of absence from my philanthropic activities.
I kept focused on rewrites provided by beta readers, a professional editor, and my critique group. I researched and decided on my choice of publishing.
My goal, publish by December 31, 2017, It's happening!
This year was the beginning of what I truly did for myself. I paved the road for myself and understood that i’d end up crushing some ant hills, but I realized that they can dig tunnels and move Out from underneath me and continue their colonies elsewhere. I’m happier now.
