I have no idea where this road will take me, or if it’s even a “road” at all…but, I’m finally making a move.
I found a good lead on this wonderful woman, Nichole, who is an author out here who lives in the next town over from us. On paper, everything sounded good: she’s a highly acclaimed, highly experienced author, she’s close by so we can meet face-to-face (which is important to me), she just looks really happy, she’s a mother of 5, and she seemed flexible in her emails to me.
But, when I met her in person today, she was even better than I even dreamt she could be. Nichole was so open-minded, super easy to talk to, was excited that I wanted to skip the publishers route and do it all myself, and gave me exactly what I wanted and needed: homework and someone to be held accountable to.
This little journal is going to come everywhere with me and I’m going to just get some ink on it. And, whatever goes in it, I’ll share here along the way.
So, stay tuned.
