Random rocks, don’t you think…?
1. I don’t get to say I’m a marathoner. Yet. I am a half marathoner (which means I’m only half crazy right now, hehe). But I’m training to go all in early next year. Lots of hill an speed work that my little stick legs hate.
2. Writing a book and running a marathon have so much in common. Loud music helps tons. You gotta make small manageable daily and weekly goals to survive. Even bad days at it feel better than not doing a thing. And then before you know it, ta-da, you reach your goal.
Then you sleep for a week.
3. Enchanted Moon’s development has been a mental marathon in itself. I started over so many times, not getting the story onto the page quite right compared to what was in my head and heart. The hard work looks to be worth it, though. This is the first book I’ve written that my critique partner is over the moon about. She’s tough to woo and that always pushes me in very good ways so to win her over is a huge accomplishment for me. In just weeks, we’ll get to see if fans agree. If you want a taste of it, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org for a four chapter sneak preview.
Okay, so maybe not so random. Maybe today has a theme after all. Going the distance?
