Happy New Year! Twenty-seventeen (2017) is the year of expansion in the number of new authors. This is exciting news for the Cider Enterprises Book Club Conference Call. In fact, this year’s list of new authors will include me and brother-friend, King Teasdell. Yes, we are going to unleash our own stories of “overcoming” the barriers that have delayed our publications. We know that our truths about our lives and the barriers we eliminated will be encouragement for others who have stories waiting to be written and published.
I’ve been told that 2017 is the year of Opulence and Abundance, which reiterates my own heightened feelings about what this New Year means to me. Twenty-sixteen (2016) was the year of completion; and in the case of my book, I made the decision to get it done. Near the year’s end, I was blessed with a nine day opportunity to work at my own pace, and committed several hours to writing each morning. I set up my spiritual music in the background and was amazed at the results this devoted time produced. The writing flowed. After three or so hours passed, I took food breaks and walks for about 7,000 steps. During this refreshing and invigorating time in nature, I had time to review and clarify what I had written earlier. I concluded each of those days reluctantly reminding myself that “this is enough for now, go out and walk the last 3,000 steps to meet the daily goal”. I eagerly returned home to get busy again with a renewed enthusiasm to tell my story. My working title is “Instant Ain’t Everything” and is planned to be released in February.
