Back To Work

Okay, enough with my professional conundrum. Life's an adventurous game and I'm ready to play.

What drew me to this conclusion? Well, I started to think about what defines me. It's more than being a writer. And then I thought, heck, if Nathan Bransford can be an agent extraordinaire and still find time to write a worthy for publication novel, then there's no reason why I can't make my schedule work.

Now, I'm not saying I'm going to stick with the whole PhD thing for good, just for now. As in this minute.

What I can guarantee is that I will stick with my writing. And planning on attending a conference or two. Oh, and starting another novel (more to come on this soon!).

As Eleanor Roosevelt said, "The future belongs to those who believe in the beauty of the dreams."

And I believe baby, and yes, it is beautiful.

Yay! Yes, never quit the writing. No matter what other hell you may encounter in life (and I've been through a few), the writing will always be there.

It's like a free form of therapy!

Awesome decision! Keep it up. I was interested in the part of "Beauty Secrets" that I read from your website. Great job.

Good for you, Steph! I, too, have to juggle "real life" with my writing dreams... and while it's not easy, giving up one or the other is simply not an option!
