I’m braver in the morning. What curls my toes come nightfall, wiggles them when the sun peeks over the horizon. Most new projects overwhelm me before my head hits the pillow; but in the morning, I dare to dream big.
So I guess you could say I’m a morning person like Mom.
One morning this week, I took a giant step and pushed right through a big puddle of fear; I uploaded my first manuscript file to createspace. Now there’s no going back. I’ll spend the rest of the summer working with the interior design team.
Was I terrified? Heck yes I was. Yet courage crept over the horizon with Mr. Sunshine just when I needed the extra boost. In fact, I kept telling myself, “JoDee, you’re doing it. Don’t stop now!”
Do I have a cover design? No. But I hired that service. Do I think the book will sell? I haven’t a clue. But I’ll share my excitement with anyone who cares to listen. Over five years of thoughts and a lifetime of personal growth fill those pages. Today I savor a sense of accomplishment. I made it this far along my publishing path and I’m gearing up for the next part of the journey.
I’m braver in the morning…without a doubt!
