One Change, A Whole New Existence?
It's funny, isn't it, how much one thing can change your whole life? When I was little and I would run my fingers lovingly over the books in my bedroom (I had sort of a personal "library" of books by the time I was in high school, and it has only grown since then), it didn't matter how much I loved those books or how much I loved the idea of writing my own someday. I still couldn't really imagine I'd ever be where I am now.
It's not glamorous but this writing journey has changed so much of my life - and it's changed me in huge ways as a person.
I still have my days where I feel like this could never happen to me, like I'll never be able to build the kind of huge fan base some others have built. I have days where I wonder what I'm doing, why I'm doing it, if it will grow to the point where I can use it to support my kids in a better way. If I will buy a house, if I will buy cars for my daughters. If I will send them to college, if I will be able to open doors for them that were not open for me.
Will I?? Who knows. None of us can know. Everything can change in a day, a moment.
With every new like, with every new follower, with every new sale and every review, my life is growing and changing in ways that I never thought possible for me. It's been such an adventure over these four short months (today is my four-months-as-an-author-anniversary), and I can't wait to see the rest of where I'm going.
Thank you so much for following along.
