You know that feeling where you want to hug the whole world?
That’s how I feel with my revisions finished. I’ve never worked harder in my life!
The 27th Letter of the Alphabet, originally entitled firstname.lastname@example.org, is officially out on submission!
A state that, for me, leads to reflection and philosophizing.
If asked which I value more — the end goal of my writing, or the lessons learned along the way, I’d have to choose the latter every time. The lessons in persistence, hard work and faith serve to benefit not only the writing and publishing journey, but the journey that trumps all journeys: life itself.
What some call a wretched road, I call a blessed road, and a road I feel privileged to travel. And I wish the same for all of you; that amidst the twists and turns of your dreams, you find value and meaning sprouting along the roadside … surprises that grow you, delightful moments that enlighten and sustain you.
Dogspeed, as I like to say.
Dogspeed to you.
