For years, people have told me what I should do, what I’d be great at and why I should do it. I’ve always listened…sometimes, it took me years like when I ran from the career I was chosen to do (which, consequently, I’m not currently doing). It is always hilarious when I hear stuff like that.
One of the things people always said to me when I tell stories or something was, “You should write a book.” Honestly, it was never something I thought I COULD do, but I just wrote short stories here and there. I was always in school so, I didn’t like to write because I always HAD to write. Actually, my best friend and I started writing a Novel when she was 16 and I was 17…yeah…hmm…maybe after I get Benjamin and Fontana’s story out we’ll revisit that one!
Like I shared before, in November, I finally bit the bullet and took up a challenge called NaNoWriMo and wrote a complete manuscript in 30 days. It’s shorter than novel length, well, it was, but I’m seriously working to get these edits done. N E WAY…(we used to write it that way in high school…seems silly now…) So anyway, I came across a graphic today that I wanted to share…it’s perfect! It tells where I am! I’m somewhere between 3 and 4 in the writing process. Looking forward to the other emotions that come with publishing! LOL…My favorite part is the marketing….”The marketing of your book is left completely up to you: an introvert who started writing in the first place to avoid talking to people.” If that ain’t the gospel truth…
So…when you see that book with my name on the by line…remember the funny girl from the So Says Kimyatta blog…BUY SOME!
Until next time,
