How many entries have I said something along the lines, “I’m going to change!” or “I can’t take this any more?” I’m also certain I’ve said, “I’m ready!” or “Here I am!” in many places and many different ways. Here I am again and this time I mean it!
Who’s ready? I’m ready!
Today, while waiting in the lobby of Mom’s glaucoma specialist one of the many things I did during my almost 3-hour wait was research self-publishing. While I have written many stories over my fairly short life of 36 (almost 37 😯 ) years, I haven’t really tried super hard to get my work published. The hardest I tried was one summer while in grade school; I sent what I later learned was called “an unsolicited manuscript” to Scholastic (the quote is what they wrote in the letter). I was turned down within a month, but I never stopped writing. After that I stopped trying to get published, but I didn’t stop writing.
I’m now ready again. I’m ready this time, though, to publish my own works. I have at least 3 books I plan to try to self-publish. One is in very rough draft format and I wrote over the course of 7-8 months (5 months of which were in my head), but I plan to proofread it like mad and re-write at least thrice more. Two are part 1 and 2 of my autobiography. I don’t think I’ll include my thank-yous at the end of part 1; if I do include them, they will be heavily edited by myself. I’m still writing out part 2. I’ve always said I want to publish these “because even if I only help one person, I will” feel as if I’ve done what I planned (that quote comes from part 1 of my autobiography)!
I’m also ready because time is running very low now. Bank accounts are at an all time low, I’m having more and more health issues arise (mental, physical, and spiritual) from both my own and family members. I can’t deny any more all the subliminal messages and overt messages that have been placed in front of me lately. I see inspirational quotes, movie clips, search terms, magazines, etc. everywhere I look! Right now I’m looking at a sign I said I was going to hang up in my bedroom somewhere, but I haven’t (maybe it’s a good thing, too because I keep looking at it more and more now). The sign reads: “When you feel like quitting, think about why you started!”
Yes, it’s time! I’m ready! I’m not looking back now! When this all comes to fruition, I will be sure to post all the details here: on this blog! You will all know and, I hope, support me!
Who’s ready? I’m ready! Here I am; send me, LORD! I come to do Your Will!
Love and prayers, for success and, as always! ❤
