The year is almost over and I just finished re-creating a better version of the first book I had published a long time ago. This time I self-published through Amazon’s Kindle Direct Publishing.
Is self-publishing the way to go? I don’t know but I currently think so, being that my first experience with a publishing company was frustrating to say the least.
How is this related to this blog you may be wondering? Honestly I’m trying to figure out how to explain it.
I love to write and I love to run so I thought combining the two would be fun.
There are a lot of ideas dancing around in my head and a lot of projects half finished in the art room and on the computer.
Running is a way to get clear on parts of life that often stress me out and help me move along with my projects or feelings of overwhelm.
The endorphins released while running also help to tame my insecurities so I can get past the feeling of whether or not my creative endeavors are “good enough” to put out there for the world to see.
In other words, running helps me see clearly and writing helps me remember that clarity while organizing my thoughts. It also holds me accountable to the choices I have decided to make when I put them in writing for others to see.
So please bear with me… my intentions are good and my motivation is high for actually achieving the dreams I have held since I was only a child. It has only taken me 35 years to get to this point where I believe it is actually possible to succeed. It is never too late.
Also I am extremely grateful to all the people who have given me feedback on my books and on my blog.
Thank you for inspiring me to continue on this path!
