Writing a Book – Goal Update

So my last 3 posts were affiliate related. What’s up with that?! Well, as some of you may know, I have 4 children. … Fruit snacks don’t buy themselves! 

I wanted to just write a blog post without any links in it, so that’s what I’m going to do! I love links and making money, but it isn’t the purpose of this blog. The purpose of this blog is for me to document my goals, achievements, thoughts, life musings, and more. It’s 100% mine and I can do whatever I want with it. I love this blog and I’ll blog (or write when and if blogging ever dies) until the day I die or can no longer write, even if I never make another cent, I’ll be here blogging. 

Why am I writing a book? 

I love to write. Simple. I write everyday, at least once a day, and I never miss it. I take notes, write posts that I never publish, write lyrics. It’s a love that is like breathing for me. If I don’t have a pen and paper on me, or at the very least my cell phone with the notes app, something is wrong. 

What is my book about? 

My book is about a woman named “Bryn” who rededicates her life to Christ after her long-term on and off again relationship ends. She deals with everyday American woman struggles and figures out how Christ fits in to all of it. Bryn is based on many real life women I know who identify as “Christians” but are actual real life women. It’s not a Christian Fiction. It’s a fictional account of what so many christian women deal with in our modern society and how we can follow Christ while living in the world in a way that is individual to us and honors God, without conforming to the image of a “Typical church lady”. Mouth full, right? But it’s lighthearted, I promise! It’s about love, sex, marriage, and female empowerment. I love this book you guys. It’s a book I would buy. That’s why I’m writing it. 

When will it be done? 

No idea! I’ve been focusing so much on growing my social media presence, organizing my blog for fall, raising my kids, being married, selling Avon, and more, that I haven’t been working on it! I guess, realistically, I’d love to have it ready to go by my next birthday. May 1 2019. 

I’m crazy about this character you guys. Crazy about her! She’s a little bit of me, but mostly what I think I would have been if I hadn’t gotten married and had kids. She’s actually fairly lonely. She’s me, in another life. She’s not as strong willed as I am. But she becomes that way when she’s strong in Christ. Just like me, I guess? She’s lovely and more patient than me. She’s me, but not me. Other writers, you get it? 

I’m so excited to have this finished. I don’t know if I’ll be able to have it traditionally published. From the research I’ve done I think I could market it myself and sell it digitally on a platform like Amazon and have more success. It’s certainly no Christian friendly version of “50 Shades”! So I’m thinking I’ll go that route. 

I wrote a beginning to the book that I was pretty happy with, over a year ago. I’ll share it here, but know it needs work! Super rough draft ❤ 

Thank you so much for taking the time to read this. I love connecting with people so feel free to follow me on any of the platforms I’m on. I’m on many of them! Ha! Here is my linktree.

Love to all,
