Learning is a Lifelong Process

If you’ve been following my journey, you know writing my first book wasn’t an easy process.

I still have a lot to learn. Ugh, forty-nine years old and I feel like I’m back in school. The place I hated the most while growing up and did everything I could to avoid.

Let me backup a bit. Growing up a multi-sport athlete, I was more concerned with playing a game than was with my schoolwork. I’m positive I was capable of being an ‘A’ student, but never put forth the effort necessary to be successful in the classroom. My claim to fame was being the top athlete in my school.

So you wrote a book. Now what?

Simple answer for me. I start writing the next story that’s been floating around and talking to me for the last year.

But just writing is only part of the answer as I learned while writing, For the Love of Us.

My check list for book 2

1) Have an idea. Ok, I have that one covered and I hope it’s a story you’ll enjoy.

2) Write it, Ok, I’m doing that too.

3) Don’t forget I need an editor. Better get on that now since her schedule will fill up quickly and I don’t want just any editor. I want my editor.

4) Figure out how to pay for the publishing expenses again because earning royalties from that first book is not easy and may never bring me into an actual profit. This is where the love of what I doing comes in.

With a little help from my friends

In November 2018, I made the big decision to write a book with the intention of publishing it.

The stories I’ve been writing for years are very rough. I wrote them for my enjoyment, not worrying about grammar, punctuation or anything you need to correct prior to publishing.

While writing For the Love of Us, I paid attention to the rules of writing as best I could. Correcting as I went and getting advice from anyone willing to give it.

The entire writing process has opened my eyes to everything authors do to publish a book. It’s unlike anything I’ve tried before with a learning curve that seemed impossible to climb.

I was ready to give up, feeling as if writing a book was more than I was able to accomplish.

The fear of failure is not something I’m familiar with. I am a competitor through and through. Nothing can stop me once I set a goal. I’ll never quit until I reach the finish line. I attack life knowing I will win… but not this time.

♥Blurb♥

What happens when the kids leave for college and you remember you’re not just mom, but a woman too?

Simply going through the motions, on autopilot day after day, weighed heavily on me.

The one thing which bonded my husband and me, before the kids came along, was slowly cast aside as their needs grew more demanding.

Intimacy became an act; a performance, without the desire, passion, and lust we once shared.

My need to feel desired and wanted by my husband ate at me and I was determined to make him see the woman he married.

I wasn’t going to give up and hatched a plan, one which would hopefully forge a new beginning for us.
