A funny thing happened on the way to the lake last Friday. Yes, we were in the car, but hadn’t left town. My cell phone pinged with a new email.
Of course I had to take a quick peak. I am a writer after all. Aren’t we always waiting for something?
My inbox held an email I’ve been dreaming of for five years. Mary Keeley requested a phone conversation to discuss representation. I screamed, I cried and then I did what any self respecting author would do.
I TURNED THAT CAR AROUND AND WENT HOME!!
The whirlwind of excitement that followed our phone conversation is still in ‘pinch me’ mode. We made it to the lake, but I never got my head out of the clouds. I dreamed wide awake all weekend. Not a whole lot of sleep.
The best part of it all is that I have an amazing agent and literary agency of dream walkers to share the journey.
Agent Mary Keeley and the Books & Such Team: Janet Kobobel Grant, Wendy Lawton, Rachel Kent, Rachelle Gardner and Michelle Ule.
This year I picked a word in January to represent my personal theme for the year. This year my word was:
Some things are just too amazing to put into words. For a writer, wordless moments are unimaginable. But this weekend I experienced the unimaginable.
Yes, I have a long ways to go in my writing journey, but this first big step is a sweet victory and if I’ve learned anything along the way its to celebrate each moment.
Is there something you’ve been dreaming of for a long time? Never give up! That dream is a moment waiting to happen. It may not be today, it might not be tomorrow, but if you work hard and commit your dreams to God anything is possible.
