We Notice!

One of my favorite authors is Neil Gaiman! He is a genius! Neil Gaiman said,
“You get ideas from daydreaming. You get ideas from being bored. You get ideas all the time. The only difference between writers and other people is we notice when we’re doing it.”

After my husband and I did our weekly grocery shopping yesterday, we noticed our dog was walking on only three legs. She has all four. She had her back left leg pulled up and would not put any weight on it.

So we took her to the ER this morning and they found that she had a broken toe. How that happened, we don’t know.

But we were sitting in the pet hospital and I was thinking, “well, I now have this experience I can put in one of my books.”

Every time I have a new experience I think about where I am going to add it in one of my books. I need to start keeping a journal strictly for new experiences to that I don’t forget them and can use them.

Neil Gaiman is right, “we notice when we’re doing it.”

Firsts!

Wow.

What do you say on your first blog on your first website after self-publishing your first book?

I can finally be counted among my favorite authors in the basic aspects of the word…author!

It has been a very exciting rollar coaster ride and I wouldn’t have missed it or change anything about it!

Self-publishing my first book has been a tremendous expierence and I hope that whatever talent God has given you, you take it and glorify Him with it! God is good, generous, gracious, merciful, loving, and forgiving and He is so adventurous! I love that about Him!
