Dear Me a Thousand Years ago (give or take a few seconds)


Dear Me a thousand years (give or take a few seconds) ago,

When I first heard about the Write Path, I knew I wanted to write this blog post and I’m excited that this also my 400th blog post (I hope you'll hop over to the party  cuz there are prizes!).

I knew I wanted to be an author a long time before I started to seek publication. Okay, I probably didn’t know when I was a baby, but I see I looked worried, so maybe I did.

So, if I could actually write to Past me, here is what I'd say: Am I glad you didn’t know what was ahead? Maybe a little. Becoming a published author is a lot like getting married. Or becoming a mother. Or getting old…

    • You don’t know much.
    • You don’t know what you don’t know.
    • And you don’t believe the people who do know.
    • It’s both harder and more wonderful than you expected

 To finish reading about my Write Path, you'll need to hop over to my blog, because that's where the party is happening. I'm really excited to be celebrating my Write Path and my 400th blog post!

Perilously yours,


Pauline Baird Jones
