Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Telling the Truth Tuesday: Sometimes I take the easy way out
I'm not sure where I'm going with this post. I guess what I'm trying to say is that even if I want to take the easy way out with publishing my book, there is no such thing. There is hard work in writing a query, a synopsis, researching appropriate small publishers, mailing the packets, following up, etc. If I choose to avoid that and self-publish, there is hard work in finding an illustrator, getting help with formatting and distribution, etc. I cannot avoid the hard work, no matter which route I take. So I must take my time figuring out what is the right choice for this story. And just bite the freakin' bullet and do it.
