Writing my first book has been an amazing experience! There’s so much to learn, and for me, most of it’s been on the fly. I’m still in the editing process, but I thought I’d share some things I’ve learned so far, things I’ll definitely keep in mind while writing book #2!
S**t’s getting real!! The excitement is building as I complete the first draft of my memoir. I’m rolling my sleeves up and going back to the beginning, ready to do some thoughtful editing.
Time flies when you’re writing a memoir! A few thoughts on the last few months as I continue to create my own unique version of the writer’s life.
In my head, I saw myself writing my entire memoir in solitude in my cozy little home, drinking good coffee with little to no distractions. In reality, it hasn’t even been close. But through it all, one thing is clear: my commitment to finishing it is stronger than ever.
I’m realizing that it’s less about where I write and more about letting it happen when it needs to.
