I’m excited! My new book is finally ready to be sent to my editor. The final title:
Sorry I’ve been away so long. Between Thanksgiving, completing my new book AND having a terrible cold, I’ve been plenty busy!
The struggles continue within. Do I have enough faith that my new book will make a unique contribution to the literature on believing in and finding love again? Does my own knowledge base and personal experience merit the creation of this work? Will it be worth the effort to create it? Will others benefit from my work?
These are the kinds of questions we all struggle with if we choose to be writers. At one point, I even made my own pros and cons list and, in this way, convinced myself that I needed to create this book. Why?
- I have useful experience to share
- I can give instruction and hope to others
- It’s a great learning experience for me
- It makes me feel good about all I have learned
- I simply need to do this, my intuition tells me so!
My only real argument against the creation of this book was that it makes for some damn hard work, demanding lots of personal processing and concentration on my part. I decided that wasn’t any argument at all!
