Long ago and far away I used to be fairly artistic...I can draw and I can tell a funny story.
But then life and responsibility got in the way and I left that all behind for a mature respectable job that paid well and had great benefits.
Did you know that kids like to eat? Yeah I know, I did too, but honestly.
Gone were the closet dreams of doing something creative and hello, office-girl was born. Office-girl finds office work easy but boring. If you are office-girl you know exactly what I mean.
So, if you read my last post you'll know that I've reached a cross roads in my life and it's pretty much 'now or never'.
I've started doing research online about book publishing, or more specifically children's book publishers. (Thanks Jen for that great article on Amazon.com publishing direct. I'm going to have to look into this deeper as well.)
Ever since we moved to the 'burbs two years ago I've had a story forming in my head that I just can't shake, it's time to see if I can take it somewhere.
In the words of my BFF, 'You are not going to make money right away from doing this.' She's going through the publishing roller coaster right now, so she can speak from experience. All I know is that if I don't give it a try right now, I'll have only myself to blame for not taking a chance.
If anyone has publishing or writing advice I'm all ears. Right now, there can never be too much help.
So tell me, did you follow that dream or are you office-girl (guy)?
