I know I told you all a while ago that I was working on a REALLY BIG writing project, weeeeeellllll... I decided it's time I told you all WHAT that project is...drum roll please...A BOOK!!! Yes, I'm WRITING my first book. I am soooooooooo excited about it, I think you all are going to LOVE IT!!! It's something I have wanted to do for years but never had specific and clear direction on how to do it.
At the beginning of the year I once again started feeling really strongly towards writing it and then combined with a message one of the men preached at our church about goals and dreams, I felt like it was time to really push forward with it. I began to really think and pray about it, I didn't even know WHERE to start, the ideas and inspiration are there, swirling around like a tornado in my mind BUUUUUUT... how do I put all this amazing craziness together into the format of A BOOK??? So I talked to a very ORGANIZED friend, Courtney Thaler, and she said, MAKE AN OUTLINE...I was like, WOW, I NEVERRRRR would have thought of that...BAHAHAHAHAAA!!!
I mean, I absolutely, THRIVE with outlines, (like I literally think I should just MARRY AN OUTLINE, someone that lets me be ME, buuuuut can put some major ORDER to all the MARYNESS;) buuuuuut it never clicked to do one with a book!!! Once I started on my outline, I used my informative speech outline from my public speaking text book for a guide line, and EVERYTHING just became and began to fall in to place. Then my book intro became clear and I think I OFFICIALLY started writing the book in February. I was waiting to talk with my pastor about it all before I announced it, buuuuuuuuuut, that's done now, soooooo I figure it's time I tell you all, I'M WRITING A BOOK!!!! EEEEEEEEEEEEEEHHHHH!!!
It will still be a WHILE before publication and you all being able to read it, buuuuut PART 1 is almost done. I will then send that out to my "team" and get there in put, on things that are clear, unclear, boring, things I need to add, take out, etc...and while their doing that, I'm going to start PART 2! The goal is to have Part 2 done by the end of the summer. (There's 5 parts, sooooo yeah, it's gonna be a WHILE. Then my plan is to hire someone to professionally edit the book...YES, I NOW I NEED THAT...lol...there's the whole book and cover design, publication and advertising process....buuuuut I've take the first steps AND I'M WRITING IT!!!
