You and me—we have something in common. I can tell. Maybe you have big dreams and even bigger obstacles getting in the way of those dreams. Or maybe you say yes to everything and then wonder why you have no time to pursue your dreams. Maybe you’re a first-time author who’s so excited to introduce your creation to the world that you just can’t stand it. Or you’re about to embark on a journey into self-publishing, second-guessing yourself with every step. Maybe you’ve moved and you’re homesick, and it’s glaringly obvious every time you go out in public in your blue and gold that you’re the thing in the scarlet and gray world that doesn’t quite belong. Whatever our similarities, whatever brought you to my blog: welcome. If you stick with me long enough, this die-hard West Virginian who works as a magazine editor by day and moonlights as a wannabe novelist might just show you something worth sharing.
