The second half of 2016 has truly slipped away. Crammed with so much inspiration and activity, I have repeatedly moved my blogging to my To-Do list week after week. But to scold myself would be counter-productive. As an author my first commitment must be to my writing, and I’ve been thrashing out my fifth manuscript – a contemporary women’s fiction with romantic and suspense elements. Moving into this mainstream genre has given me more scope to delve even deeper into my characters to elicit more emotion for them and the reader.
Finally finished and edited, this manuscript has been sent off to a number of publishers, all of whom have different submission guidelines, which in itself is extremely time consuming. And now the wait begins again.
Even though my butt has been glued to the chair, I have taken some time out to celebrate…a critical enjoyment to living life to the fullest. My book launch for Dance to a Gypsy Beat was a wonderful success, with everyone enjoying the flamenco mood, champagne and excerpts from the book. To think that in twelve months, the Dance of Love series was published still awes me. As I slide into the finish line of this year, I am grateful for the still, small voice within that has guided me on this exhilarating journey. I know the best is yet to come.
When has time slipped away from you, while you’re hard at work making your dreams come true?
Insight…Just keeping going, and trust all is right time, right place
