Okay, you've thought of the perfect story idea. It's a story you know people will love.

Instead, let's first just start and then build on a new writing habit.
BUT, let's do this TOGETHER.
Help to create a community.

How I went from not understanding anything about publishing to releasing 32 books in six years:
Have you ever awoke from a dream and thought it would be the perfect story idea? In 2013 that happened to me. I should back up a bit first though.
Way back in high school I wrote poems but I didn’t let anyone read them. Then in eleventh grade I wrote a children’s book but quickly tucked it far away. I didn’t think my words were good enough, so what I wrote was just for me.
Then during my internship after my nutritional science degree, my director told me I was not a good writer. My self-confidence was already low so her words just solidified every single one of my emotions.
For the next nine years the words “You’re not a good writer” ran through my mind on a daily basis. Even when I decided to start a food blog in 2010, my husband had to check every single word I wrote.
Basically, writing a book was the farthest from my mind.
Then that dream happened. You know, the one with the perfect story idea?
I’ll never forget the moment my husband said he wanted to know more about my dream. There was no hesitation after hearing his words; I quickly ran to write the book.
I wrote 32 books over the next six years.
My husband was the spark I needed to finally write. Of course, I fumbled along the way and deleted many words. Oh, and publishing, that was interesting. I had no idea how to upload to a bookstore or share it on social media. I knew nothing but somehow I found my way.
Even though I’ve published several books, I never became a bestselling author. None of my books hit the top ten charts or ranked high on Amazon. None of that matters to me, though.
Here’s what did matter...I had found a way to move past my barrier. For so long I didn’t believe I could write. Then when the spark was ignited inside me everything in my life changed.
That’s why you’ll hear me say ALL THE TIME, "we all have a story to tell and someone out there needs to read it." Once you let go of what’s holding you back and create, magic happens.
