When the Winds of Fortune are Blowing, Set Your Sails and Stay the Course

Sometimes, everything just comes together. Throughout my life, I have always been the unlucky one. I don’t mean that in a ‘pity me’ tone, but rather in a near comic one. I literally have no luck, I never even win a coin toss. My sister and I when we were young would toss a coin to decide who could choose the evening tv shows. I never one. Not once… in years.

However, that seems to have changed recently, and as a result of hard work, blood, sweat, and tears, I am got some momentum built and am not positioning myself to make a real charge.

I have always had big plans for myself, but now everything is starting to come together, and I find myself having to pinch myself at times. My novel has been published, and not only have I got dates penciled in for the second and third installments of the trilogy, but also a tentative date for my short story collection(s).

Yes, I can now not only stand up and call myself a writer, and have the work to back it up with, but I can say that for the first time I can remember, I am in a great position to make things happen.

Who can say what will happen in the year ahead, all I know is that the hard work starts now, and I will be grasping this chance with both hands and have no intention of letting go. I have a great editor, outside of my publishers, so have two professional sets of eyes viewing my work, and a wonder agent / PR manager who, like me is young but fiercely driven, and together we have plans to march our way to the top of the hill and stake our claim.

  1. Like you I’ve never been lucky in the ‘small’ things but I have been extraordinarily lucky in some of the big things. I hope this big thing of yours takes off like a rocket!
