Four years ago today...
I was about to share pages from my first complete novel.
I was preparing my luggage.
I was rechecking my hotel reservations at the Newport Beach Hyatt.
I was nervous.
I wanted to cancel my registration.
I was about to attend my very first writers' conference.
I questioned my sanity.
I wanted to be a writer.
I had promised my wife and kids that I can achieve my dream.
Today...I am double checking the presentation slides for the two workshops I plan to give.
I am preparing for my speech on Sunday as the Special Guest Speaker.
I am packing my luggage.
I am rechecking my hotel reservations.
I am excited.
I am grateful for all the writing community and book lovers have done for my career and my novel.
I question my sanity.
I am an award-winning author.
I have a bestselling book.
I am invited regularly to speak at author events.
I want to always improve and evolve as a writer.
I want to make my wife and kids proud.
I am the luckiest person alive.
Tomorrow...Is full of possibility and magic.
Fight the good fight!
