My Gopher Hole

Book progress. Words are done, I am making changes to the edits in digital form. I get anxious about it all (it’s due in May, MAY I say!)…and my husband says, “You have people that love you. You just need to keep pushing out content and interest and they will share with their friends and it will just keep going! And it only takes a second.” With that thought, my heart and brain freeze with overwhelming anxiety. I can’t even think about creating more or sharing more right now. I am in my gopher hole, focused, writing, editing, illustrating and designing. By myself, no distractions. I am a one woman show with too many plates spinning. I am anxious but SO excited. I LOVE the journey and progress. It feels amazing yet scary.

So, I told the huz that I LOVE the idea of pushing out more of my content on social media channels…but the thought of me sticking my head out of my gopher hole makes me sick and anxious. I can’t.

So, back in my gopher hole I go. If I’m not writing blog posts and pushing content, it’s because I’m writing. And preserving energy and time for this beloved book which is much larger to reach even MORE people.

I love each of you, I know you’re out there. I know you’ll be there when I’m done. But I’m a little scared, overwhelmed yet having fun, and have to get this done so I can share my gift with the world. It won’t be long and I’ll come out shining (with glitter!) with all kinds of good stuff for you to learn and share.

xoxo and back in my hole…
