Today, my first son turns 23. It’s also the day I chose to publish my first novel, Finding Sam on Amazon.
Now , while I just “published” an in-progress novel for NaNoWriMo a few days ago, there’s nothing like actually publishing a completed novel because I know it’s as “done” as it can be. Even my husband told me a few weeks ago that if I kept worrying about perfection like I do over my work, nothing I write will ever see the light of day.
So last night, bleary-eyed and cross-eyed, I hit the button marked Publish and unleashed my dearest Sam into the world. And while there may not be any balloons, cake and confetti to mark such a momentous occasion, I did receive my iPhone 6 Plus today and just activated it.
And I also heard from the Margaret Atwood people about the Wattpad contest I entered a month ago where I wrote a bit of fan fiction for her new novel, The Stone Mattress (and no, I didn’t win BUT I am getting a copy of her book as a runner-up!). Still…
It’s a good day to be a writer.
