Journey of a Hopeful


Journey of a Hopeful

I started on this writing journey several years ago. I wish I could say it’s all been peaches and cream but the truth of the matter is, it’s defiantly been a hilly, curvy and bumpy journey. There were times I would throw my research in a box as if putting old photographs in a box storing it away, thinking this is too hard, I can’t do this. But never failing, I would pull it back out as if the pages were calling my name yearning for the story to be finished. I believe the yearning came from the gift that God placed inside of me because everyone has something worth telling and without Him, I am nothing.

I’m not sure if anyone goes through the doubt, frustration and discouraging feelings of writing a story but in retro, I believe that’s all part of learning your niche. It wasn’t that I didn’t have the story inside me, it was the feeling of not being good enough to write a book.

Not long ago, I read of an author that said she couldn’t call herself an author for the longest time because she didn’t feel like an author just someone who published a book. She couldn’t see herself in a category as one of her favorite authors. But, a year later, her statement has changed, she learned and grew in the business. She now calls herself a published author.

And much like her, since I began writing, I now have a published book with several other’s finished ready to tweak before sending out.

So, now I begin a new journey, hopefully getting more books published and tackling the big M word- Marketing.

I want to take a moment and thank all the bloggers out there helping newbies to the business. Your experience and information means a great deal. Your blogs are worth the time that you spend posting.

I would say that my journey in writing is just that a journey always changing but moving forward and I’m looking more and more hopeful.

Be Blessed,
