Writing a Book in 3 Trimesters
275 days. That's nine months of preparation to launch my next book. I hoped it would be sooner but I realized other events going on in my personal life needed more attention. I made an important discovery about life along the way – if you don't pay attention to how you're living, you may not live long and prosper. I was so fixated on completing my first novel that I forgot everything else important in my life. I was headed to an early grave. Not anymore.
Ask any parent with multiple children how each pregnancy is different and they will give you a variety of answers. It's the same for authors. Every book is different because every experience is different. I'm hoping the wisdom I gained along the way will help me be better prepared for what's ahead in the next three trimesters. The truth about this pregnancy is I'm not really writing a book, I'm living individual chapters that will be woven together with words. This book has a purpose – to change lives. All proceeds from this next book will be donated to Children's Hospital. I'm going to be busy these next nine months but not too busy. I hope you check in here to follow the story as it develops. Have a great day.
