I found, and I’ve heard other writers say the same thing, that I learned more about my writing self while writing my novel than any other time. I have written tons of non-fiction: Bible lessons, Children’s church materials, puppet skits, stories, etc. But writing my novel for young girls taught me some S.T.U.F.F. And re-writing it taught me more. And re-writing again taught even more. Novel writing is …. ummmm ….. awesome? 🙂
But it is published! And I could not be more excited. My hands actually shook when I clicked the “publish” button. My husband laughed at me because it has been ready for quite a while. It is not new, per se. But something happened when I was actually ready to “publish” it on the Kindle store. But it is there. For the whole world to see. And read. And like. Or hate.
It feels great!

I hope if you have it in your heart to write a book, that you go for it! It is worth it for the experience alone.
