Somebody pinch me…

Everything is all still going in the right direction.  I am meeting with my publisher tomorrow.  I have had occasion to say that quite a few times to people now – ‘I’m meeting with my publisher’ and I am still not used to how it sounds.

It certainly does seem as thought I am going to pull this thing off.  It appears that having spent the last two years slogging my guts out; sweat and tears – literally tears on several occassions in fact, that I am going to be a published author.

The tears have been on occassions when my Dyslexia has loomed and potentially threatened to scupper the project.  But each time I have blown my nose, Nicci has talked me through it and I have found ways around it – mostly when I have stubbornly tried to ignore that I am dyslexic, and haven’t wanted to admit it needed a lot of proof reading.

I am sure that this is going to be the thing that I am most proud of ever achieving.  Getting my degree pails in comparison.  But in both cases I am extraordinary proud because I have achieved them despite being dyslexic.

    From looking at the blogs of other authors and talking with friends who’ve managed to / are battling to be published, it seems like a constant slog to get anywhere. No wonder so many folk are going down the self-publishing route (which seems to be carrying less of a tarnish than it did in the past).

    Keep banging the rocks together and top job on pushing against the idea that dyslexia means you can’t write; you can!
