The Second Best Thing
Take a look at my cover. Raise your hand if you knew I would have it up here! Sorry, couldn't help myself. 2011 was a great year. But becoming published was the second best thing that happened. The first? I became a grandmother for the second time. My grandson made his way into the world in November. My granddaughter hasn't figured out that he isn't a doll yet, and has had a few jealousy issues when she sees me or hubby holding him, so we have to make sure we fuss over her too. I love being a grandparent!
There have been a lot of changes this year. Son went to college, daughter and grandbaby moved out, parents moved in. And I got dead serious about my writing. I spend hours a day in front of the keyboard. I have my good days when I'm on a role. And there are the bad days when everything I write is crap. But I've learned to accept that, and I try not to get into a tizzy over it.
That's the biggest lesson I've learned this year. Don't sweat what you can't change. The world's not going to end. At least not until 12/21/12. LOL! Just kidding.
Now on to writing the next book. I feel it calling me. And if you want to know more about Dreamers, visit my website www.shawndaltonsmith.com or go to http://www.eredsage.com/store/product992.html Hey, did you really think I wasn't going to throw that in there?
