A while back a friend of mine gave me a suggestion for a project she thought I’d do great with. She gave me the genre. She gave me the topic. I took it and ran. When I finished that novel, I kept going. I started another project. Then another. They all remain unpublished.
Until then, all I had written was memoir, sharing my personal experience…I wrote about family, friends, my childhood and my terrible body image during my teen years. I wrote a blog that had many followers and received many comments. Then I switched gears.
Well, recently, as I was working on my third novel, trying to fulfill a ridiculous word count I gave myself to complete before the weekend was out, a new idea popped into my head. I tried to muscle through, ignoring the catchy new title and the concept that was singing through my head, but I couldn’t.
In this audio blog, I talk about how I realized what I am meant to do…and the stories I am meant to tell.
I am going for it.
