1st, sorry for the super duper late update. Like… 3 months later update! Oops.
2nd, If you’re new here and are wondering what this update is for: At the beginning of this year I started writing a memoir (Surviving The System; My Journey Through Foster Care). I have 9 Chapters completed and those will remain on my blog till the finished product is published, if you haven’t had the chance please feel free to take advantage and get started on the first 9 FREE chapters while they’re still up!
Now for all my faithful supporters who I left high and dry after Chapter 9… Don’t hate me! haha
I was kinda hoping I’d just randomly fall back into the writing groove but unfortunately it just didn’t happen that way. Ill spare all of you from the many excuses I could spew; pregnant and tired being one of them.
Ive come to realize that I have this annoying trait where the notion of disappointing people leads to going into hiding for a period of time. I’m working on it.
One of the most important things about writing to me is creating raw, honest, good quality material. I would never be ok with pushing out a chapter just for the sake of a deadline when I know in my heart I could do better. I could have squeezed the last few chapters out for sure but I didn’t start this just to finish. I started writing because I have a story to tell and I would be doing myself a disservice by releasing something only because I didn’t want others to be disappointed in me.
Alas, I’ve come to the end of an internal debate that I’ve found myself struggling with, and that is; the rest of my chapters will be shared when my book is actually ready to be published!
This is good news! As it’s an even bigger motivator to dive in and finish what I started!
I’m very proud to say that I am well over halfway done with the chapters, thanks to ALL OF YOU and your support every week! I never thought I’d get that 4th chapter in after having 3 of them written months prior to sharing with you all, let alone 9!!! I have all of the people who have supported me through this to thank; whether it be a like, comment, share or private message your support has filled my heart and truly motivated me to make it this far!
I am excited to regroup after popping this baby out and to share the final product of my hard work and emotional growth with all of you.
This is just the beginning!
P.S. This isn’t the end of the blog BTW, I intend to post a couple times a week here documenting current life and new baby shenanigans! Stay tuned!
