Happy Tuesday everyone!
It's a great day because it's my birthday!!
Now I will admit this one has been harder to swallow than my last few. I am now 45. Yes that is a 4 and a 5 put side-by-side.
Normally birthdays don't bother me for many reasons, but this one has.
A lot of it has to do with my writing and the question:
Am I too old at 45 to write YA????
I've been wrestling with it.
Thankfully in the last few days I've come to terms with it.
I'm just going to write the stories that come to me and let the rest sort itself out!
And then I reminded myself of why I should celebrate each and every day I'm here.
13 years ago I battled and beat breast cancer.
7 years ago I had open heart surgery to repair an aortic aneurysm.
Both of those could've make reaching 45 impossible for me, and I don't want to forget that!
So now I focus on:
watching my kids grow up
laughing with my wonderful husband
enjoying coffee, wine, a good book and simple things
As for the writing at 45 question - I'm just going to be grateful that each day I can still put pencil to paper and write!
To celebrate I thought I'd put some books up for grabs. Nothing too exciting.
Each gets to pick a book from those pictured below.
