Celebrating the Wins

Posted On October 13, 2023

I planned to have it published in August, but I’m used to my plans changing. I aimed to announce the new release in my October newsletter, but just couldn’t quite pull it off. In this month’s newsletter, I promised my subscribers I would send them the cover, description, and links to get “Alphabet City” one week later. That promise I kept! “Alphabet City” is live on all the platforms and available on my website for a discount.

Though I had fewer clients this week, other stuff rushed in to take up the empty space before the boundaries could be drawn. I’ll alway be fascinated how that happens. Today I was finally able to take an hour and enjoy the fruits of my process. Another title, number 44, available for those who like shorter stories, like to cheer for the underdog, and want warm, fuzzy feelings when they’re done reading.

One down, three projects to go. I remind myself to pause along the way. To celebrate the milestones, no matter how small. After all, it’s the small steps, the minute pieces of the process, that bring us to the completion of our goal. How do you celebrate a win?
