This is me right now.
Because I finished The Assassin’s Wolf!
… Well, okay, I finished the first draft. There’s still going to be numerous amounts of editing done over the next few months. But also… I finished, I finished, I actually finished!
I’ve never gotten this far in the creative process before. So, while it may not seem like a big step to some, it’s kind of huge for me. I’ve wanted to be a writer since forever. There were no other options for me.
(Well, except the fleeting moments where I considered being a social worker, a preschool teacher, and – my personal favorite – opening up my own big cat wildlife rescue.)
Because I was so hellbent on being a writer, when I reached the Official Adulting Age of 18 and had yet to publish a bestseller – or even finish an entire book – I was absolutely convinced that I was doomed for failure. When I still hadn’t accomplished this by age 20, I was sure that I just needed to lie down and disappear into the dirt.
But I didn’t. And I’m so, so glad that I didn’t. Because I’m in love with Bella and Boone, and the whole entire story, and I think you will be, too.
Thanks for sticking with me the past few months. I’m so very excited for where 2016 is going to take us both.
