Okay, it is a new season for me. I have been writing in my book AGAIN. I took a pretty long break, it's embarrassing how long of a break. I don't know what my problem is sometimes but I was a huge procrastinator around the 6th chapter of my book, Accountable To God. I think it was a mixture of intimidation and laziness. The subject matter had become quite intimidating for me and I wasn't even sure if I could write about it?! It was pretty tough, so I took a long hiatus. But now I am finally ready to finish this book. I have to because if I'm not clear on anything else, I know God wants me to write this book! I went through a few trials and a few milestones and triumphs, got some more wisdom under my belt and got through it! I mean God got me through it you guys. So I only have two chapters left and I will be done finally! I am embarrassed to say how long I have been writing this book, its seriously should not take anyone this long to finish a book, but I guess that's what happens when you stop writing all together. I actually decided to add one more chapter after overlooking everything and I think this will be pretty good for my first published book.
I have started looking in to self publishing really heavy and marketing. Its a lot of information out there but I have found some pretty helpful leads. If you are interested check out http://www.self-publishing-coach.com/ The owner of this website post so many useful tips. She's very knowledgeable and she makes it easier.
My Next Goal:
Finish the last two chapters! While I'm doing this I will be looking for an editor, (I am not sure who to start with on that) and then I also want to hire someone to professionally design my cover. I really want to do this the correct way, I don't want to end up writing a book for the sake of saying I wrote one and end up with hundreds of copies sitting in storage!? Or in the trunk of my car.(wait keeping them in the trunk of my car is not a bad idea?) I feel good!
Well until next time!
