PUBLISH MY WRITING

As we all know by now one of the 10 goals this year is to publish my writing. I have decided to think big and write a book proposal. I have been working on it non-stop for the last two weeks and It’s been a serious test of patience. I never thought it would be so hard. I was arrogant enough to think it would be a breeze considering I write every single day. Wrong…wrong…wrooooonnnng. I can’t even explain why it’s been so exhausting. After staring blankly at my computer screen for a few hours last week, I decided that I needed some inspiration so I sent an email to a friend who has published many books before and asked her what her secret was. Hoping there was some magical secret…some nugget of anything she could offer.

Her response…

“Book writing is up there with climbing the Himalayas for degree of difficulty. It is lonely and intellectually complicated. Also very worth doing.”

Love, M

Ernest Hemingway
