Another month has elapsed, many small changes or adjustments have been made to my book proposal, and this part of the journey is coming to an end. Working with a professional editor has greatly enhanced my writing and knowledge. Small nuances such as comma placement, italicizing a word, or using a punctuation mark can make the difference between good and great. And I believe, after numerous revisions, this proposal is great!
Throughout this process I have consistently listened to/trusted my gut instinct. Regardless of the outcome, I know I have produced a compelling product of which I am deeply proud. Be Your Own Superhero will affect lives for the positive; offering a unique, four-step process through which readers can learn to take control of their health and well-being, and feel great in their bodies and in their lives even if living with a chronic disease. It is a roadmap to becoming one’s own superhero: embodying resilience, coping with adversity, clearly seeing life for the gift that it is, and helping others do the same.
Now comes the most challenging part of the entire process: waiting. Today I will submit my proposal to the Hay House Writer’s Workshop Contest. With a deadline of November 15, they will not inform applicants of any decisions until December 15. From this moment onward, all I can do is wait. Or is it?
I believe in the power of prayer and in the Law of Attraction. Therefore, as I’ve been doing since I began this process, and will continue to do until it is over, I am praying every day; thanking God for my proposal being the one that is chosen to receive the grand prize of a $10,000 advance and publishing contract with Hay House Publishing.
As my editor is doing, I ask you to hold me and my Proposal in the highest winning vibration you can; keeping all toes and fingers crossed for a successful outcome. My inner voice tells me it is my time to shine. In the meantime, I will turn my focus to completing the actual manuscript. If I can complete it by year’s end, I can begin the editing process in the New Year with an end-goal of having it published sometime in 2017.
Thank you for following me on this journey. Thank you for keeping me and my Proposal in your prayers.
