I'm Molly Louise and this my journey as a scientist, wanderer, and, most recently, will-be published author.
This whole experience so far - signing a contract, getting to announce it, turning in the first round of edits, seeing my name and bio on the CTP website - has been absolutely awesome, and, I'm not gonna lie, a bit overwhelming.
It gets really overwhelming if I think about what could happen after it's released, and I try not to think about that right now.
The bright side to all of this is that there are others who have gone through this part of the process. Everyone from the other authors at CTP, writer friends on Twitter, and basically anybody who's an author who's written about the experience. It's kind of comforting to know that we've sat in the same boat at one point.
I'm navigating. I'm navigating having a first publication, moving to a new city (I've only been out here in Buffalo since mid-April), working full time, and having a writing to-do list that, at first look, seems absolutely ridiculous.
So. Carpe diem, and go big or go home, apparently.
Thanks for stopping by. Browse. Smile. Giggle. And maybe say hi.
