Yes, the title is lame but after spending all day finishing up my novel I really couldn't find another way to express what this the blog post was about. I think I can hear my brain short circuiting as we speak. I'm just so happy and thank God that I was able to finish the first draft of my novel Soul Sisters.
Some people may not see what the big deal is since it hasn't been published yet but for me it is an amazing step toward a life goal. I recently decided college wasn't for me since I've been struggling with an illness. So, I've decided to start my own book tour company and write a book. Every now and then I get a little doubt in the pit of my stomach that makes me wonder if what I did was right. Actually finishing the first draft of my novel tonight really assured me that I have what it takes to make my dream come true of being a professional author.
When I'm not writing or booking tours I spend a lot of time trying to shape up my writing skills and reading about how to promote books and such so, i have no plans of slowing down on my goals.. I am a little afraid of the editing world I'm about to step into but I've heard a lot of good things about that so really, I have very little fear. Plus I have an awesome editor, Zari Banks, behind me who I know is going to help shape up my novel into the fabulous piece of work I know it can be.
So many people have been supportive of my dream to finish this novel and I can not say thank you enough!! So yes, I'm feeling a little bit like this right now:
