The Continuing Story of “You Never Know Where The Road Will Take You.”
I recently wrote a post with that title and guess what? In one split second and with what seemed (at the moment) to be an insignificant choice, I was taken off my path and stumbled into a completely unfamiliar town.
That town is named “New and Unexpected Children’s Picture Book Author.”
I know it is an unusual name for a town but hey it’s my journey and that’s what it’s called. (Work with me here).
How in the world did I end up here? First off,I should tell you that I personally do not have any children and in fact there are no children in my family. I never had any intention of ever writing a children’s book and to this day do not consider myself an author much to the displeasure of my illustrator. I am working on that though.
I have written a series of 5 books.The first is set to come out in 2018. Each one took about an hour to write. They just came to me so I thought I should at least be open to following the breadcrumbs and seeing where I end up. “Nothing ventured, nothing gained” as they say. Plus I am a person who wants to have the least amount of regrets possible at the end of this journey and I do believe that most regrets are the result of the things you didn’t do, not the things you did.
If you have followed my journey here or on my blog, one of the first posts that I wrote described how my life sort of unfolds in front of me. I was never a “Plan your whole life” type of person. I have just remained open to the possibilities and opportunities of life and like a curious dog following a scent, I am always surprised where I end up.
I am continuing my journey and will be spending most of time in this town to see who I may meet and how things unfold be so if you are curious about how all of this came about and how I am weaving, spinning around and get my bearings in my new and unfamiliar location, follow me.
If I know that there are others who want to hear my story then I will be more inclined to take some time out to share it with you. I think you will find it to be an interesting, humorous and informative little tale.
