Baby steps

It's been a week since the fire incident and i'm thankful i've gotten over it, even in the process of buying a new cooker.

The week since then has been very wonderful. For one hubby suprised me by coming home that day. He just called like some minutes before 8pm to say he'd be switching off his phone for a while, then he'll call me, i was wondering ok? Then it occured to me he might be coming home and i thought, could he? Well, like one and half hours later, he called to ask where i was, i said home, he said come open the door. Boy, was i impressed! Well, i don't need to tell you what happened after.:)

I'm making progress on my book, i've set a target for myself to finish my debut this month end so help me God and so help myself. Hubby has been so supportive, giving me the necessary push when i'm being slack. I'm taking a step at a time and i believe God is ordering the steps. If i've got a gift, then i should maximise it, shouldn't i? Well, i've decided to do just that!

Then, i made contact with some publishers. I want to believe they'll be interested in my work once i finish and then i'll be qualified to say i'm a writer.:-). I got to meet Ebun Olatoye randomly and she's been such a huge help. She answers my questions like she's meant to.

Things are looking up. I'm on the way to where i believe i was meant to be. I just need to keep my focus and stay true to it...cheers.

God will see you through as you finish your book, and of course all through all the stages to getting your publishing deal! I wish you all the best, you go girl! Soon you'll be calling yourself a published writer. And I will be able to go to my local bookshop and ask for a copy of your book! You and your hubby.. awww!

Ore...bawo? I for one can't wait to see your book hitting the market. Though I have no clue what you are writing about, but please leave some portion of that your fun loving spirit in the work...

Thanks for your comment on my blog. ALL writers experience seasons of self doubt. It good as it keeps you on your toes. The trick is not to be overwhelmed.
