I didn’t expect to feel the surge of excitement that took over my whole being, when I saw my first piece of writing in print.  True, it was just the beginning of my memoir, but it was mine, with my name boldly printed under the title.

 Pushed to another place, I felt as if I were soaring above the usual responsibilities of the day.  I barely thought about what needed attention at the commercial buildings that I manage.  I certainly didn’t think of any household tasks that presented themselves. All the usual concerns were pushed to the background.

 Now it’s day three since the magazine has come out and the thrill has faded a bit, but the newness keeps me on my toes, keeps my heart pounding a little faster.  This altered state of consciousness makes me impatient with the editing process.  I want it all done now!  I want the next thrill to come right now, to see my memoir in print. 


About writerladyjane

I'm a writer with a finished memoir, titled Images. Most of the blog posts relate to the general subject of my memoir and are about my experience of Federal Agents entering my home and arresting my then-husband for child pornography, as well as the following two years of threats on me. There are also posts that are of a lighter nature and some to do with my travels, especially a trip around the world I took with my daughter. I have an MFA in creative writing from Fairfield University and live in Westport, CT.
