Anyone Out There?
Updated: Oct 3, 2019
Sorry it's taken me so long to write a post. I've been busy on my book. It's at first draft stage and I'm talking to really wonderful editors, all of them are super supportive. The challenge is to chose which one to go with. Another challenge will be the publishers but one step at a time!
Anyway, as you know, I am in southern Italy at the moment. I am originally from Ireland. I have turned my life around to facilitate my writing and I am still not sure whether I am any good at it. I am just going with my gut. I felt something deep inside telling me to write - so here I am!
Actually, I have been going with my gut for the best part of a year now and my life has gotten so good. My relationship with my hubby is great and I am much more patient with my kids. Of course I still get mad at them but I feel closer to them than ever before.
The only thing bothering me right now is the self-doubt that my website and my book will ever be read by anyone. It feels like sometimes, I am writing into a deep dark abyss. my writing goes in and nothing happens.
When we moved country, I left my closest friends behind, as well as my family. For the most part, I am supported by my amazing spiritual journey and the love of God that resides within me. Every now and then, though, I miss the exchange of ideas, love and connection you get from other like-minded people. I miss the spiritual connection you get from spending time with other human beings.
I just have to believe that slowly I will get readers and I will make connections. I know I have not put much of my energy into my blog recently but that will change.
I love you all - even if you are not reading my blog! I know like minded people are out there, so even if we never meet virtually - I salute you and wish you the best life possible for you.
