It’s been a while since I posted a blog and that’s because I’ve been busy writing a book. As I write down that sentence I am so incredibly proud. I wrote a book! I did it. It actually started as a series of thoughts and feelings written in various ways – on pieces of paper, in the notes app on my phone and in various word documents.
All of a sudden, I had thousands and thousands of words written and I didn’t know what to do. I realised I needed some help and found a book writing coach who gave me some techniques to craft my words into a story. As a storyteller, I do know how to tell a good yarn in person. But writing it in a way that brings the reader on the journey with you is a whole new world for me. I spend hours, days, weeks finessing and writing and re-writing.
I then found an editor to help craft the story into chapters. More days/weeks writing and re-writing.
Ups and downs along the way…
And finally, after many months of this writing roller-coaster, I found the final editor who helped me craft this into my very own memoir. It’s at the printers right now and I am so incredibly excited about having this little creation in my hands.
Creating this book has been the best time of my life during one of the worst times of my life. What a juxtaposition that is. I am forever changed because of what I went through and the insights I gained from this journey. I have so much more to say and I cannot wait to write more.
Peace and Wanderlust
