Last night I finished the second edit on my new fiction book, The Game Blocks of Life.
Our talented daughter Leah, who is a graphic designer, designed the front cover for me. (Pictured above) I bought the image of the colored blocks on iStock, where I always find the perfect image for my book covers.
My goal now is to get the third edit done by this Friday (October 22) , and then print out the manuscript for a more thorough edit. There’s something about printing out a manuscript that helps you to find content, spelling, and grammar mistakes easier. Then I’ll do the final proofreading before publishing it at Amazon.
This is my 22nd book that I will publish.
I’m not a procrastinator, but I have family members who are. Drives me crazy!
However, I do struggle with perfectionism. I call perfectionism “procrastination dressed up in high heels.” Both are usually rooted in fear. Fear of being “good enough” or “perfect enough.” No one is perfect but Jesus!
There’s another “P” word. Pitfalls. What are these? Things like scrolling on social media too much, busyness, laziness, cleaning the house, organizing, errands to run, or anything that serves as a distraction to stop you from doing what God has called and anointed you to do and to be.
There’s nothing wrong or sinful about these things. But they can sabotage your success and mine.
How is your new year going?
This year I’ve started a “new thing” at my Facebook Business Page. I’m offering a “Writing On Wednesdays” Facebook Live video (free of charge!) to give practical tips for writers and speakers. This is to inspire, motivate, and encourage you to write your book(s) and step out speaking this year!
I’ll also be sharing about a new writers and speakers virtual training that I have coming up soon, so stay tuned for details!
You can join me each Wednesday at 2 p.m. Central Time (3 p.m. Eastern Time) at my Facebook Business Page at this link below:
Bring your fave hot or cold drink, your questions, and a friend! I can’t wait to see you there!
