Author Visit

I can’t believe I haven’t posted anything since April! But I have been reading your blogs.

I teach kindergarten and the other day we had Erik Brooks visit our school! Of course he came for the kids but since I write I was definitely more excited than my class! I don’t tell folks at school that I write because it’s hard to talk about it when you don’t have an agent yet and they ask when your book is coming out. They don’t understand how long it takes and how much rejection there is. You know what I’m talking about.

Anyway, I so enjoyed hearing about his journey and what I really wanted to do was raise my hand and and say ‘hey I write too’! and ask him about all his rejections and how long it took to get his first book published, etc. I came away so inspired! Revisions have been difficult with this novel and I really needed this inspiration!

Right now I really want to write but we’re off to go get our Christmas tree!
