I started writing a memoir-type book a few years ago and about a decade ago I created an outline for a book about my experience in Kenya.
Both projects were started and neither have been finished.
Isn’t it so easy to fall into that rut?
When I have more time I’ll sit down to start/finish writing the book….
When I feel inspired, it’ll be easier to capture my ideas…
No one will ever read it anyway, so why bother…
All of these bully ideas are waiting in the wings to derail us from our dreams of writing, but some of us knock them down and push forward anyway.
Kelle Hampton of Enjoying The Small Things decided to fight those bullies and write a book anyway. Bloom is a wonderful memoir about her daughter Nella’s birth and it’s a New York Times best seller. I read it and it’s wonderful. I’m so glad she wrote it. I’m a better person for reading it.
Here’s a gratuitous picture of Kelle and me together in San Diego. I met her very briefly but loved her just as much in person as I love reading her poetry each week on her blog.
Check out the official book trailer! I’ve never seen a book trailer before this one, but I’ve got to say it’s definitely getting some buzz :)
Tomorrow Mary is guest posting for me about her writing endeavor. Stay tuned for some inside scoop!
