A Light at the End of the Tunnel

I’m ever so slowly emerging from my writer-hermit-mode. At least to catch my breath before the home stretch next month. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. It sure helps that the cherry blossoms are blooming, daffodils have sprung up, and cala lilies are unfurling. My winter hibernation is making way for the bright aliveness of spring.

Last week I printed out the draft of my manuscript. It was pretty amazing to just see the stack of pages! And it’s been really cool to see the Right-Brain Business Plan e-Course participants engaging with the materials and exercises. They’re doing such awesome work planning and playing!

The book continues to take shape. I’ve started receiving pictures and packages of awesome creative Right-Brain Business Plans to feature (by the way if you have one you’d like me to consider, please let me know!). And this week I met with my dear friend and fabulous designer Kate Prentiss to start brainstorming about the cool illustrations. (As we enjoyed yummy treats at Bittersweet she scribbled the adorable note above in honor of our Year of the Tiger – which is already off to a great start!).

While I never want to run a marathon, I definitely feel like this writing journey demands a similar type of focus, commitment, and endurance. After I pass one milestone, there’s another around the corner… I’ll just continue putting one foot in front of the other…

You’re speaking my language! 🙂 This looks wonderful…and that stack of pages is quite impressive! What an exciting time.

I agree – while my spring emergence is a bit slower in getting itself out of bed, I am definitely waking up. Feels good to stretch out of some of this snow!

Here’s to one step at a time!

Yay for a stretch and a breath of fresh air.

I am so happy for you and for all of those right-brain entrepreneurs that this book is in the works and getting closer and closer to hitting the streets dancing!

You rock, Jenn!
