I started writing #Babyfat about 6 years ago. We had just moved to Tucson, Eliana was just shy of her 2nd birthday, and I wasn't allergic to the entire world yet.
Six years ago, this was my today and it was made up of dreams and determination and no idea how to get to the next step except for putting one foot in front of the other and just moving forward. Six years ago, she was my baby and she was my everything and six years later, she still is. Six years later, I'm in the final stages of publication prep with my publisher and looking at an early fall book launch date.
Sometimes,or maybe more often than sometimes, I still find myself questioning how to get to the next step. This is when this little girl reminds me that I'm the one making life harder by overthinking. All you gotta do is grit your teeth, set your sites, and march on like you know exactly what you're doing, even when you have no idea how or where you'll land.
