Up with the sun and getting ready for a pretty big day for me: my first writers conference.
Many of you know I’ve written a novel… It was finished by the time I started caring for Kenny and so went on hold for about a year. This summer I revisited the novel, spending these last three months on some pretty heavy edits. Last night I finished (I almost always need a deadline! Lol) and this morning am prepping my talking points for five book agents I’m pitching.
I have to say, I’m not sure I’ve been this nervous about anything in a reallllly long time! It’s amazing to find that insecure teenager inside of me still, or reliving old fundraising and non-profit conference experiences which I’ll admit, I really hated! It’s funny how so many of the things we want in life are on the other side of fear – so here goes!
Being gentle with myself, practicing what I preach to my clients (LOTS of pep talking happening over here this morning), and focusing on the journey over the destination.
