The Process… Needs Rest 

The Process… Needs Rest
This week my Process was a little different. I decided to do something totally CRAZY… Wondering what I did that was so crazy?!?! Me too! 
I don’t recall what it was… perhaps that’s because this week I made a point to purposefully not do much of anything book related!  I decided with every process- one must REST! So. I. Did!
Now, let’s clarify “rest” for an author two weeks before a new book release date:
I worked! Trust me. BUT! I also rested. I need to be rejuvenated and ready for this book tour. This week I didn’t make any calls for author visits 1. Because I needed a break and 2. Because they were calling me! I only had one meeting this week, and that was with my awesome publicist Mimi, Max Communications- she had all great things to say!  She’s working on all sorts of wonderful things! Although I was resting, I still answered a gazillion emails and interviews (YES! people have interviewed me!!! All coming soon – and it was FUN!♥️)

But even with things on my calendar, I took time to breathe and rest… and for the first time in 2 months, I found a little stillness. I can’t lose sight of what this story means to me! And I won’t because I’m rested and ready to go! 
It’s crazy, and at times overwhelming- but awesome! I’m so booked it’s crazy! Crazy, but also exciting 🙂 AND this week for the first time in at least 3 weeks, I don’t need a rock to hide under- I’m good! I’m at peace with this process- I understand it could be because I’m well rested, but I’m hopeful the peacefulness continues to last! 🤞🏻 
I’d like to thank all of my family and friends who have been so encouraging to me! I’ve received text messages, phone calls, and face-to-face words of life spoken by so many, and it makes this all so rewarding:) I have so many of you asking me what I need for my launch party, and I’m blown away by the kindness I’ve received ⭐️I am so blessed to have such a great tribe!
So, if you’re a writer/author reading this and planning to begin, or are already in the process, remember this part☝🏻 of the Process: “Rest” because without rest your book could suffer! You must be rejuvenated to succeed! That’s all for this week! 
If you haven’t already-
