Special Announcement: Book in the Works
Announcement Time! I've been writing a book...
For as long as I can remember, I've been wanting to write a book. In the past, I would've let something like this just linger and be a dream, but about a year and a half ago I realized something... Wondering what if would suck much more than doing and having it not work out.
After making that realization, I started the process of writing my first book. I brainstormed ideas and started formulating an outline. Over about 5-6 months, I created an outline and a plan of action for my book that I felt was achievable. From there, I began writing. The project has not been easy and there have been many times when I wanted to just let it go, but I've kept going.
One thing sticks with me, small steps in the right direction are better than no steps forward at all. Sometimes I've gone weeks without writing a single word and other times, I've finished the first draft of a chapter in under three days. It's defiantly taken me longer to get through the first draft than I'd hoped, but I'm almost there.
I'm wrapping up the first draft this week and from there will start the revision and editing process. I have no doubt that this next step will take a while, but I know it will be worth it not to wonder anymore.
This book will be about growing up with anxiety and the key tools and techniques I've learned along the way to help me manage my stress and anxiety in a healthy way. Have any thoughts on things you'd like to read about? Shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know!
