I am so thrilled to announce that my debut book But First... A memoir of a backwards life is going to be released Wednesday November 30th with a book signing and party at Parnassus Books in Nashville, TN! The party will be at 6:30 PM and I do hope you will join me! If you can't make it the book will be available online.
About eight years ago one of my roommates, Vicky, from freshman and sophomore years of college and I went to dinner. We had lost touch but she was in New York for a conference and stayed with me for the weekend. We didn't have much time to hang out but we had a great time talking at dinner. I had an exciting year and was telling her all about my adventures. At one point she stopped me and said "Heather, you're a writer right?"
I was slightly stunned by this question and I wasn't sure why. "Yes."
"You need to write this down. You need to write a book."
"Just do it."
I started writing it down that night. I had wanted to write a book for a long time. But I felt like I needed to be older. I felt like I needed someone to tell me it was okay to just do it. Vicky was that person for me. Not all of those stories we talked about that evening made the cut for this book. Those stories are going to take a little more courage but they are coming.
So today I am asking you, what is it that you are waiting for? What do you unconsciously need permission to do? What can you start doing today to one day achieve on of your dreams or goals? I would love it if you would share with me in the comments!
Start today. Don't wait for tomorrow.
