So, full disclosure, tomorrow is my birthday, but not just any birthday, it’s my 50th birthday…WHAAAA! I can’t believe it and thankfully I don’t feel it. My heart and mind are still youthful and in my humble opinion, fifty is the new thirty. I can’t wait to see what this year brings. I also can’t wait to see what this next decade brings to the table. I’m excited to welcome the next ten and will do so with renewed vigor even amidst the current chaos. I’ve already added things to my bucket list and set my new intentions. This decade is going to rock!
With that said, I’ve been mulling over what I wanted to do for the momentous day and decided I wanted to talk about the book I wrote that I never intended to write. Why? Because it quieted my mind and allowed me to look towards the future, something I need to do now as well. Falling Out of Focus changed things for me. It showed me I could be less rigid in my approach to writing. It taught me that it doesn’t matter where you write, only THAT YOU WRITE. I wrote Falling while my daughter was at her volleyball practice. They had a room where parents could go and I brought my laptop to stay busy. Twice a week, for two hours a session, I wrote. I let out everything in my mind out and as usual, twisted it into a fantasy (real life is boring). :P
Unlike all the other books I’ve written, I didn’t have a plan or a roadmap. I simply wrote what was in my heart and mind and had faith the story would come together. When I shared it with my critique partner, she encouraged me to keep going––that it was a good story. The problem with writing, for me, is that I get in my own way and overthink things instead of letting the plot flow and the characters tell their story. When I wrote this book though, I had no idea how it was going to end, until it did. All at once, I saw the story for what it was––a journey of healing and growth. A book of letting go and moving on because Novaleigh and I had to. She is not me exactly, but I am elements of her for sure. I love all of my characters, but Novaleigh and I share something very special and that is this book. So to honor the last decade and my journey as an author, I’ve chosen to feature Falling Out of Focus. With the help of my amazing publisher, Amber Leaf Publishing, along with The Blurb Doctor, Stacey Rourke, we’ve updated the blurb and are ready to share it with the world.
So without further ado…
