Yesterday I finished the latest draft of my memoir! The sense of satisfaction I had coming out of Office Depot with the printed spiral-bound copy was like none other. I feel that I have nailed the structure this time and fleshed out what I want to communicate with this book. The value-add for me is that I have learned more about myself, gained a new perspective on certain circumstances, and have a greater sense of gratitude about my life. Not bad for more than a year’s work!
I’m going to set the manuscript aside for a few weeks before beginning the next draft. I had set a personal goal to finish this draft before the warm summer weather arrived. (Mother Nature, if you’re reading this you can bring on the warm summer weather anytime now! We have had enough rain, honest!)
I did some quiet personal celebrating yesterday afternoon in the form of enjoying a Carmel Macchiato while shopping for shoes. Sounds like fun, doesn’t it?
I’m doing additional celebrating in the form of a blog makeover. I thought that the Velvet Room could use a bit of a lift, after all we all enjoy a new outfit now and then don’t we?! I hope you like the new look!
