Thank you to my 80 WordPress followers and everyone else who has supported me on Twitter and Facebook since My Writing Challenge began on 1st May 2011. With only 26 days of the challenge left to go, I am feeling on top of the world, as not only have my blog stats (number of hits) reached 10,000 just a few minutes ago (I haven’t really been watching it all afternoon!), but also things have moved a step forward with my book A Gift for Stressed & Busy Parents. The publisher told me today that the book is scheduled to come out later this year.
So, what I have learnt today is that patience goes hand in hand with being a writer. Of course there are lots of other things a writer needs, and in the words of Jane Wenham-Jones (from her book Wannabe a Writer?)…
“The only thing you can’t do without is a real longing to write and the determination to find the time to keep doing it”.
I truly believe that if you want something badly enough and constantly visualise it happening, then things will eventually work out for you – sometimes quicker than you think. I’m very excited about my future.
Will keep you posted…
4 is my lucky number and today is the 4th day of the 4th month!
