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

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