Being an author has been a thrill for me. My first book received a national award from the Reader’s Favorite Awards.
I am now working on my second book called, Signs of Hope for the Military: In and Out of the trenches of Life. It is almost finished and will come out by Christmas.
Sounds peachy keen right? Well, I have found that it is hard work and stressful. Not that I don’t enjoy writing. I love it, but there are other things I have to do like sell the book. I have been self publishing, which means it is all up to me to the marketing, promotions, signings, etc.
I am 83 years old and now am wondering if I have the stamina to go on with the big push for my second book.
Here is my feelings on that:
- Your never too old to start something.
- Use your age to be a expert on things people want to know about.
- Take time to do what ever project you are working on. Rushing has been bad news for me.
- Enjoy what you are doing. Don’t do it thinking you have to do it.
The most important thing to remember is that God is with you. He knows about your dreams. He knows what you are capable of. He will guide you down your path, or He will stop you if He thinks it is too much for you.
You are never alone.
You are never forsaken.
You are never unloved.
And above all…never, ever, give up!
