Ladies and gentlemen…. I PRINTED MY NOVEL, SEEK!! Here’s a video of me opening it, with my family. Ahh!
I used Lulu and Canva- and this tutorial by Sarah saved my life, haha, so if you wanna print your book (YESSS you do, you have to!) I’d recommend following her tutorial haha.
It is so pretty, y’all! It looks even better in real life. 😀 I used pictures of my ’69 Ford truck all around, and the fonts and all didn’t clip and they turned out nice! Whoohoo! Also: it smells good. Oh my gosh, that was important to me haha!
I am SO, SO grateful for Yahweh and my family and friends. The Lord has showed me so much writing Seek- He taught me how to forgive, how to keep moving, and how to have faith. Seeking God can be hard, but that is life. ♥ Yahweh is always Good! My family has always been there for me, always encouraging me and cheering me on when I got in the mud. My family is so excited to read my novel- and they are! Whoa! Yes, I got two copies of Seek so I could edit one, while my family reads the other. Am I nervous? Yes. 😉 But I hope they like it, and help me tackle it with my red pen. 😛
And, I want to thank my friends. Sydney, girlie, you have been my bff and have always encouraged me and inspired me to move closer to Yahweh. Through the hard times, you’ve been there. I couldn’t ask for a kinder friend. ♥ Thank you. And for the wonderful ladies in my Camp NaNo cabins- you all have encouraged me and it was a blast to write with y’all! Thank you guys.
I am ecstatic. 🙂 I will probably be editing Seek while I continue to write Jump, too. Because I love them both so much. *gasps* And Jump just hit over 40,000 words this month- and I did win July Camp NaNo last month! I won at 36,000 and my goal was 20,000. So, currently, Seek and Jump are my precious novels that i am having so much fun with. 😀 Thank the Lord for dreams, because both these stories sprouted from dreams.
Well, I must go get busy. Gotta keep myself busy while my family reads my book because EEP. There’s something about seeing my book in someone’s hands… it’s incredible. I pray God uses my words and stories to touch and help others, because I know that writing has helped me grow closer to Yeshua.
I also have BIG news…. due to my Ma’s brilliance…. this will be Seek’s last edit. *screams* Yes, it is time. I will be asking for beta readers soon! Like, very soon. *gulp* I am nervous, have never done this before, and my plan was to wait- but Ma said it’s time. 😀 I will be getting a post together to share with y’all soon!
