IT'S MY TURN NOW - 2012 HERE I COME!
This is me :)
I've had a bit of a year this year. Exciting things have happened and not so exciting things. There have been real highs and real lows... unfortunately, I'm still surfing the lows, but hopefully I'm getting there.
I have my kids and what's left of my sanity, and although my ex was hardly ever here, the mere idea that there would be another grown up in the house at some point, seemed to keep me going. Now there's just me. I know, yawn, yawn, get out the violins, pity party for one your table is ready... and there have been times like that.
Depression is not a walk in the park and I was one of those who used to huff and say, "Pull yourself together," until I finally couldn't anymore. Asking for help was the hardest thing I've ever had to do, because I was admitting I couldn't do it all, but I was supermum/superwife wasn't I? Well my ex obviously didn't think so, or he wouldn't be ex would he? Doesn't help that he's all cozy in his new life with his mistress and is father of the year because he now has to spend time with children he pretty much ignored before he moved out.
But you know what? I think that 2012 is going to be my year. I have three books so far coming out in Jan, Feb and March. Have interest in a series and also a YA college based ghost story and am three quarters through my current WIP and have a collaboration coming out with Laura Harner, author of Ty Hard, which I'm really excited about my first experience of self-pubbing.
I'm going to try and get the balance right between who I am and who I want to be and try and learn to love the person I am instead of trying to be the person I think I should be.
That being said... 2012, brace yourself... I'm on me way!
