    Day 23 of publishing Me Here Without You Now

    Well, I got a rejection letter from the publishing company. Here’s what they had to say: There’s a lot to like, but ultimately we don’t feel that we’d be best-placed to bring the work to market. Not sure what to think about it. They must have liked bits of it, I guess. Everyone keeps saying that as an author you…

    Day 19 of publishing Me Here Without You

    I’ve spoken with the cover artist of Me Here Without You. There are two options, one of the girl walking away and one of the treetops in winter. I’m not particularly happy with either of them as I’ve imagined a completely different cover but it is what it is. I don’t know, everyone seems to like the treetops more, so…

    Day 10 of publishing Me Here Without You Now

    Went to my new school for another meeting with the teacher. So much of everything to remember, got lost again in the hallways, still unsure where my classroom is. Hope I’ll find it on the first day. Luckily, it’s just the one, so once I’ll find it, I’m good. The teacher that is leaving is really helpful and kind in…

    Day 4 of publishing Me Here Without You Now

    Me Here Without You Now is pretty much finished, edited, and I’ve ordered a cover from an artist I found on TikTok. The editor (the first person to read it apart from me) said she loved it, so that gives me hope. Watched and read all about self-publishing, I think I have a pretty good idea of what that entails.…

    Day 70 of writing Me Here Without You Now

    I’m starting to feel like I’m getting the hang of this writing thing. Of course, that feeling comes and goes, and sometimes I still stare at a blank page for hours on end, but I’ve realized that the important thing is to just keep going. Even if what I’m writing isn’t perfect, at least I’m making progress. I’ve been experimenting…

    Day 64 of writing Me Here Without You Now

    Me Here Without You Now is almost finished. There are still some chapters missing, there are chapters that still have only a few sentences but the main story is finished, the final chapter is written, I’m just filling in the details around the main parts and expanding the shorter bits. I’ve started looking for an editor, it’s time for someone…

    Day 52 of writing Me Here Without You Now

    Me Here Without You is going on quite well. I really like it. It’s kind of theraputic for me, it is. There are certain experiences from my life that I’ve packages into different but similar experiences for my characters and going through them again from another perspective is proving healing for me. So, I write and I cry and I…

    Day 38 of writing Me Here Without You Now

    I am on a roll, I want to write all the time. I write in the car when I wait for my kids to finish practice, I write on the sofa watching TV, I wake up in the morning, go sit at my computer and write, then forget I’m hungry, only remember when I’m practically starving, make myself some eggs…

    Day 30 of writing Me Here Without You Now

    I am writing again! I’ve written three chapters. I’m not doing it chronologically but rather where my inspiration takes me, so, bits first then around it. I have a pretty good idea where the story is going, I know where it ends up (in the beginning), I just need to fill in the missing bits now. I’m trying not to…
