If you read my previous post, you know that I have been into online craft sales---since 2008. And before that craft fairs. I started a wholesale business, selling aprons, a couple of years back which started off slow, then took off, but this last year hasn't been that great. I won't go into it, except to say, when your vendor replaces their buyer, your business changes. It's not entirely bad, it has forced me to consider my own desires and my purpose. It made me face the fact that I am mainly a hobbyist when it comes to sewing, not a business person. Like I said in the previous post, it's a good thing. Consequently in 2015, I am making a course correction; picking up an old dream and working toward it.
I have been wanting to write a book since the 1990's. My husband beat me in that race, and published his first book in 1997. I have kept up my writing, as a practice, with blogging since 2008. In 2010, I started writing Abby's Story, but with all my other endeavors keeping up with writing a book was shelved. And as I said in the previous post, I am closing down most of my online presence in order to write full time.
The good news is . . . I am nearly half finished (with the first draft, that is.) - 35,000 words!! Yay!
I hope to keep you informed about my progress. (If you would like a sneak peak, some of the original drafts were posted in my other blog.) I feel that my year is off to a good start and . . .
Hope your new year is starting well too!
