Take A Chance

In 2010 I wrote a book.

In 2011 life was happening to me at a furious pace.  I got busy.  Really busy.  I let a lot of things and people take a lot of my time and energy.

I set the book down.

I made pretend goals and fantasy deadlines.

I wrote and worked at it half-ass.

2012 came.  I decided I'd have my book for sale online by my birthday in September.  This book finished and for sale before I ended my 40th year was my goal.

I was still mostly phoning it in.

Life shifted and changed again.  It has a funny way of doing that.

I now have time and space and silence to work.  I opened the book again a few days ago.

I'm just about half way right now.

I still like my story.  I like my characters.  I will admit there are times when I'm working on telling this story, their story when I laugh or smile at my computer because of them.  I shift my writing soundtrack when they are angry or broken, when love begins, when they are tender.

I am happy that 2 years later I still like them.

You, few readers, will be among the first to know when the book hits.
