Not to toot my own horn… but I can keep a secret. Zip my lip. Keep it under lock and key. Securely in the vault.
Especially when it’s my own.
But it feels like the time is right to open up and share some news…
I’ve written a book.
A memoir, actually. A sometimes sad, sometimes ironic, occasionally humorous story of a happily-ever-after gone dramatically off the rails. Probably more accurately, off a cliff. The manuscript is currently under assessment and subject to rounds of edits. No names have yet been changed in any attempt to protect the shameful. (But I guess, since it’s a memoir and I’m writing it under my own name, that’s pretty much a moot point, isn’t it, Patty?) I am hoping and intending to pursue traditional publishing, so I’m learning about that process and tackling the required steps in that regard. Including actively seeking representation to that end.
And what do you when you’ve found yourself with more stories and happenings that weren’t exactly necessarily relevant to said first book, but, coincidentally enough, seem to fall under their own related and yet still separate theme of body image, by its own right? AND you’re in that bit of a lull and ever-so-patiently (or not) waiting and willing for things to happen in accordance with your highest good?
Well… you outline and start a second book, of course.
Do watch this space for news and updates. And in the meantime, check in on my blog for musings and mutterings around relationships, codependency, forgiveness, trust, surrender, healing, and self-acceptance.
