It's Saturday morning and we're in the middle of an East Coast blizzard. What better day to start my writing blog? To be perfectly honest, this part of my "writing" experience continues to feel nothing short of surreal. How else can you describe the moment when your life changes from dream to reality?
I began writing ANOM: Awakening over two years ago! Of course, my writing obsession began long before that. It goes all the way back to childhood when I forced my mother and grandmother to transcribe my stories onto paper (complete with original illustrations by yours truly). Now, 30-odd years later, I'm ready to start an exciting new "chapter" of my life -- pun intended.
In roughly six months time, ANOM: Awakening will be available for purchase through Amazon.com. Of course that means no one will actually be reading any of this until June . . . /sigh. It does, however, offer a unique perspective. Today is a day made for possibility.
Who knows what will happen with the book? Maybe it will be wildly successful. Maybe it will crash and burn. Neither one of those realities matter yet, because today it's all still a dream. And six months from now, regardless of outcome, I can look back and say I tried.
