There’s an old saying that time flies by as we get older. I’m starting to realize just how fast!
Five years ago, I was experiencing the euphoria that comes with writing and being ‘in the zone’ for the first time.
I was slowly opening up to an online writing group, and sharing my story.
Four years ago, I was submitting my book to publishers. While cleaning it up in between queries.
Three years ago, I got my first full m/s request.
Two years ago, I sent it to Solstice.
18 months ago, I got my first contract.
And now, here I sit. With a cat on my lap, three books published, a fourth due to be released next month, and working as an EIC.
Who’d have thought that 5 years ago? Not me.
But I’m the happiest I’ve ever been in my life as far as professional/career wise. It took me a number of years to find my Path. My feet are firmly planted on it now, however, and the real challenge has begun.
Time is still flying by, after all, and I have no idea where this Path will end.
