It’s Day 249 of the Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose Project and though I haven’t posted in a few days, I’m still feeling proud of the publication of my debut novel, Seasons of Her Soul. Thursday night, it was a joy to share the book with my Dayton Christian Scribes writing group, which includes my editor. She and I haven’t been together since the publication, making it a celebration. And considering how supportive the group has been during the last leg of my journey to publication, I gave all of them a copy of the novel, which they promised to read and review. Between all that excitement and exhaustion from watching the first night of the Olympics, posting went by the wayside. Then, last night, following dinner with my hubby and a family friend, I finished this post and it somehow got deleted. I’m coming back to it based on my writing group’s positive response, which seems to indicate they’re almost as proud of my publication as I am.
Their enthusiasm was evident in the number of pics they snapped of me signing copies.
As a Pink Collar Savvy & Chic on Purpose debut novelist, of course I’m thrilled to have been published. Sharing with you, however, is my attempt to encourage and inspire you to persist with elusive goals or dreams. (Speaking of those – the Olympians are all examples of the power of persistence). The fact that my novel has finally been published is proof that they can become a reality. I thought I’d be published by twenty-five, then thirty, then thirty-five, forty and forty-five. At forty-eight, no wonder I’m proud of publication!
How can you be Pink Collar Savvy & Chic about making an elusive goal or dream come true?
Be savvy & chic,
