When I was querying agents, I thought all my dreams would magically happen once I got that offer. What can I say? I’m an optimist. And while I did accomplish that goal, I quickly realized the challenge didn’t end there. Next I went out on submission, and I got my share of rejections. And even after I signed my first book deal, I faced the challenge of trying to build my brand and get people interested in my book. Everywhere I turned, there was another challenge in front of me.
And now that I have books out in the world… If you guessed I’m facing more challenges, you are absolutely correct. I’m out there promoting and trying to work on new books at the same time, which is… Yup, you guessed it! Challenging!
What’s the lesson here? No matter what, you’re always going to face challenges, but they’re what the journey is about. So I’ve learned to embrace them. It won’t be easy, but I’ll get everything done because that’s what writers do.
What challenges have you faced lately?
