It’s been almost a month since I’ve written a blog post, and this is a trend that’s going to end this week. My wife thinks I don’t really care about this blog. But no! I have been busy working on my memoir. And if you’re a follower of my blog, then you know it’s my mission, my journey, my goal to publish this book. Almost a year ago, an agent suggested a revision. I’m please to announce that the revision is finally finished.

Well, at least this revision. I’ve been writing this book for almost eight years now.

To be honest, I’m not even sure if it’s the last revision. You know what, I can say for sure, no matter what happens from here, I will still be working and editing the book. But it feels good. Now the waiting begins.

It’s funny. As a writer, you need to learn to have extreme patience; you need to learn to accept all the things that are out of your control; and you need to learn confidence. Because there are so many ups and downs, so many periods of prolonged waiting, it’s essential to develop a strong belief in the self. I will make myself a white Russian — or two — as I’m waiting.

  1. People don’t get how time consuming even a blog once a week can be. You have to come up with the idea, flesh it out, write it, rewrite it. And you don’t want to just throw up crap. And trying to do that AND have a job AND work on a book AND drink a bottle of wine every night is just about killing me, so I understand!

  2. Very true. And sometimes this all happens while drinking a bottle of wine. Thanks for checking out the blog. Just checked out yours. Very impressive. Looking forward to reading.
