i can't write here right now because

i can't stop writing my book!!!

i know, i know.. i said i'd never write a book. i was never one of those bloggers whose sole purpose was to get published. it was never my intention or my reason for blogging.

but this book... this fictional story that i've wanted to tell.. it's been in my mind for YEARS. and it's simply never left. so i decided it was finally time to bring it to life.

and bring it to life i have. i can't freaking stop. it's consumed me. i think about the characters and the story constantly and only wish i could write the story as quickly as my mind thinks it up. but i can't. because writing.. well it's hard.

and time consuming.

and way slower than you want it to be.

why didn't y'all tell me?


thank you to everyone who has inspired my characters.. inspired my writing.. and encouraged me to continue. i could not bring this to life without you. i hope it rocks as much as i want it too when this is all said and done.

Maybe this is what you were meant to do after all. Maybe this is what it's all been leading to. Exciting!

That is awesome. Like you, I've never wanted to be a blogger-turned-published author, but I've also had this story running around in my brain for a long time.

Good luck with the writing and I'm glad that you're loving it! Can't wait to read it!
