It's all starting to feel incredibly real now and it's fair to say that the closer I get to "release day", the further I find I've strayed from my comfort zone.
That's okay though--me and the deep-breathing thing have become firm friends over the last few years! And I think I've mentioned a time or two on this blog, that this journey is all about being separated from your comfort zone and learning not to shy away from things, so as not to limit yourself or your writing.
But I'm also learning that this journey has to be about celebrating the good things as well. Wow! I can't believe I actually came right out and said it.
As authors, most of us have had to learn patience, perseverence, self-belief, how to deal with rejection and how to keep perspective! The further along this adventure - the more we learn it's not only about the writing. Although, my little tip: remembering to make it mostly about the writing, does help you deal with all the other things ;-)
So...small celebration has taken place and now it's back to the writing!
