since I walked away and quit my job as
head cook only cook at a country cafe in a little town which is barely a dot on the state road map. Burned from wrist to elbow, burned out emotionally and physically, and tired of being taken for granted, I vowed that I would no longer accept these conditions just to make a few dollars.
I decided to finally tackle my dream of writing and publishing my book of embroidery designs and patterns and I set to work, stitching and writing up into the late hours where only the howling wind outside was my company.
The more projects I designed and completed...........
the more designs would pop into my mind. I had made a goal to finish and publish by mid to late spring. Here I am, a few projects and weeks away to reaching that goal.
HOWEVER................there is always a "however" it seems................. and I am putting my rose colored glasses aside................
after being alerted by blogging friends and doing some extensive research on the Internet, I found out that the publishing company I had chose to work with is not as reputable as they claim to be. Too many red flags with so many complaints about this company has made me disappointed and in search of another publishing house. The publishing world is not so easy to slip into........it's very challenging and hard to get accepted into. I'm not giving up. I am going to finish my book..........
and keep positive...............and turn every stone I can to see it to it's success.
How about you?
Ever have big dreams or plans and have them crushed?
Did you overcome the obstacles?
I would love to hear.
