Today I thought I would reach out to all of you who are just starting on your writing journey. Like you, I was filled with excitement, tension, and nerves when I started thinking about publishing my first book. You may have doubts and fears. You may sit and wonder, why start? What if I mess it up? What if something goes wrong in the process? What if it doesn’t go anywhere?
“Why Start?” you ask.
Because you have been dreaming about writing it your whole life.
Because it makes you feel alive.
Because it’s a part of you.
Because maybe you have always been encouraged write a book.
Because you can’t imagine doing anything else.
Because you will learn a lot on your first journey.
Because you’ll make mistakes.
Because it may not go anywhere. But it’s okay. For now, the feeling of accomplishment you have will be just as good.
Because you’ll meet new people along the way.
Because you will work with great people. (Interior designers, illustrators, etc.)
Because you want to leave your mark on the world.
Because you don’t ever want to have to wonder, “what if…’
Because you can.
