I’m Doing It!!! The Next Step on the Journey

Some of you know that I have a book that I wrote a couple of years ago, and submitted to a few publishers. Well, nothing happened with it, and I kind of put it on the back shelf because of all the other craziness going on in my life.

The funny thing is I wrote a good portion of the book here in Okoboji. So now I’m back, and thanks to some fabulous feedback from Celest, I’ve dusted it off and am ready to try again. I spent the last two days editing, and I feel like it is getting better all the time. I’ve made a few major changes, and I’m going to make the audience slightly older (young adult rather than middle grade–Heidi you should like that ;). I feel good about the way it is going. Time flew over the past couple of days, and I couldn’t stop.  So, one more pass and then I will submit!

I’m excited. Whether it gets published or not, I feel like I’m taking the next step towards the reinvention of self which is something I really need to do this summer. I don’t know what the future has in store, but it is time to take some chances and find out.

Wish me luck!
