Facing your Challenges On The Long Road Ahead

Long winding road,

Another week has gone, and I can’t help but wonder how I’ve made it this far. I’ve entered a new stage in my journey, and I’m not sure how long it will take me to master this one. Marketing. Ugh. I’m still pouring my heart out into that second draft, racing toward April 1st, when it will finally hit the shelves. I enjoy that part of the process, though… when I’m living vicariously through my characters; thickening the plot. Now, I’m finding out how much more there is to launching a novel than just writing a great book. Now I have to learn how to create an interest in that really great book.

I’ve never been one who enjoyed tooting my own horn, so you can see why this process would be so daunting. It’s so much easier to hide behind my computer and weave a story. Adds, Promotions, Beta Writers, ARC Writers (goodness, did I forget anything?) these are the things I am dealing with now… when I’m not writing.

So, I’m taking it one step at a time. I’m still learning, and that is okay. It has been a long road, and there’s still a few miles ahead of me, but I’m going to finish the race. I will finish and then look back on this whole wonderful journey with new eyes, ready to go back and do it all over again. The challenges I face now will only help me grow for the future.

What journey are you pouring your heart into? Keep pushing through, and don’t give up. A great challenge shapes a great person!
