I don't want more people to purchase or buy my books. I mean I won't say no to that but it's not the sexy part of being an author for me.
You know what I really want? I want that next one person to pick up one of my books and be fundamentally changed by it.
And there's a difference.
There's a difference between how that book is written and how it's released into the world.
There's a difference in the process behind the book.
There's a difference in the energy that is put into it.
There is an attention to the beauty of each word, and to how it is wrapped up and gifted to the world.
When I work with people on their projects I desire the same for them. I want them to experience the soul shifting change that comes as they refine their divine message and deliver it onto the page.
That's the good work. That's why I write. For that moment when I can feel the reader's life opening up in a new way because mine did as I scribed it in the first place...
For 2 weeks I've been staring at the details... those little things that have to be put together for a project to be complete, for the book to be published.
Things like the back of the book, the dedication, the ad for the interior, typing the list for the publication checklist. Lots of things that would only take a couple of hours tops...
And my heart glazes over every single time I look at the list...
Then I remember, that perhaps I have to muck space around the little things. They will all get done, probably at the 11th hour, probably because I have no alternative to NOT doing it in that very second.
Because for my friends who are not finishers, it's the boringness of the little details that stand in the way of completion, NOT the actual finishing.
So I can choose to beat myself up and force myself to do those little things, or I can choose to do them at the last minute, like I will probably end up doing anyhow, but without the guilt or pressure.
The book is still on its way, and the designer is still creating her magic. It's gorgeous and everyday I've been getting feedback from my early readers making this a truly exciting project to release...
...as soon as the flipping details get done
Here's what's happening in Stacy-landia right now. I'm celebrating what I'm up to and while it looks like I'm super busy, I'm also celebrating that this is all coming from a place of great ease which is the best part of it all!
"Writing The Damn Book" book coming out in a couple of weeks. Over 3 x as many Book Angels for this one and it's amazing, I can feel the love
Another writing retreat in the works with several people already interested in coming.
My Energy "System" of Awesomeness has been CREATED (My clients know of it as my 4 Pillars...will share more on it later)
Book for that started
Book on Active Surrender half deleted to be in higher vibration and draft 2 well underway
AND the struggle I've had in creating a class for Your Inner Council. Over. Why? Because it was never meant to be a class...it was meant to be a juicy retreat where we manifest the HELL out of our highest visions in a circle by intimately getting to know each of our council members and slingshotting each others' energy in the room.
Page and plan for that in the visioning and creation cycle now.
Ahhhhhhhh...that feels so good.
