Now I'm finally a published author one book old and this morning finishing a convo online I realised what was the best thing about this writing journey.
Of course the book is a unique award and it's absolutely thrilling to have a published work and be able to say I've written this. But what I got were the priceless friends I've made on the way. Friends who've supported me sometimes in unexpected ways. Surprised me. Friends I can talk to in troubled times and those who understand and totally 'get' it.
So this post is for my friends. I can't name you because I might miss someone, there are so many of you who helped in each of your unique special ways. But at the risk of getting soppy, much love to you all and thank you. Because without your contribution, I wouldn't be feeling so great at this point in my life.
So as I finished the chat this morning, I was filled with this warm fuzzy feeling and grateful to my book because it brought me inadvertently in contact with such awesome people.
Do you have awesome friends? What is more important in being published? The book or the journey?
