I have to admit the world of writing and publishing can make a new writer feel daunted at times. However, I’m so excited for this new challenge in my life. As I work at my leisure, I have to say the butterflies in my stomach definitely do a flip-flop, when I spot a Facebook post from an author and it says “Only on FB for a short time………I have a deadline. Catch up with everyone later.” , and the one I saw today “I’m so sick and I have a book due in two weeks.” Yikes!!
At this point my journey with writing hasn’t dealt me any deadlines, and I’m thankful for that small gift. I consider myself a person who works extremely well under pressure, so I plan on meeting those deadlines very professionally. Please don’t ask my husband how I would carry on when doing my English Literature homework in college. LOL!!! Major meltdowns when the words wouldn’t come 🙂
Well, with the exception of my kids and doing book reviews for Satin Sheets Romance, I have never had a deadline. Not bad for someone who has been 29 years old for the last 16 years 😉 All in all, I’m sure things will work themselves out. The most important thing is that my children see me achieving my dreams and goals, no matter what juncture I am at in life. Back to my writing cave 🙂
