Honestly, I don’t know if I have the remotest chance of winning, but I’m just so thrilled to be a part of an illustrious set of nominees. I mean- sharing space with published authors, speakers, life coaches and their ilk? What a perfect way to start this new decade.
I’ve been on this journey for close to 2 years, but I’m still an infant in the giant world of manuscripts and deadlines and publishing. There are things I don’t know and secrets I’ve yet to unearth. Rejection letters galore and then those “we’re pleased to publish your story” emails. The road is winding and sometimes my feet hurt. But I refuse to stop walking.
Thank you for always reading. I write for myself, but more importantly, I write for you!
