I need to take a break from my project, to come up for a little air. I have been working on my book, and what a process it is. Very interesting! I am learning a lot about myself. I am learning how I best work, what distracts me the most, and what I am willing to sacrifice in order to be productive.
I am certain that if I hadn't received such kind encouragement from my friends and family I never would have embarked on this incredible journey. I have felt inspiration and direction, and I am excited to be pursuing this lifelong dream.
My book is a non-fiction work focussing on a personal discovery. It isn't a long book; it succinctly describes my journey accompanied by what I hope is motivation to embark on a similar personal journey of one's own.
My working title is "It Beginneth to be Delicious to Me."
I am fine-tuning now; verifying references; trimming the fat. My goal is to be ready to submit it for publication by the end of the month. I have passed it to a few people to pre-read, seeking input, suggestions, and mostly validation that I am on the right track.
Their comments have been very encouraging.
While I am realistic about the likelihood of rejection, my husband and I are commited to finding a way to make sure this is published. He is my greatest supporter, and his faith in me is very gratifying.
I will try to keep my blog readers updated on the process. Let's hope for the best!
