Journal Entry #40–Reviews and Happiness

It felt wonderful to start 2023 with a self-published book on Amazon, Literary Observations, and being able to publish a book has been a huge dream for me. But, what really made me smile during this past week was that two people gave the collection very thoughtful reviews, alongside five-star ratings. One of those people is a writing friend of mine from DeviantArt, known for his love of history; he even published a book called Fog on the Hill, which I would recommend if you’re interested in learning more about the Battle of Bunker Hill.

However, there was another thoughtful review there, written by someone who identified themselves as “T,” that also brought tears to my eyes with its thoughtfulness. But I don’t know who wrote it. If this message happens to reach the person who did, I just wanted to say thank you for the encouragement and lovely review. I will continue to work my best as a writer.

I’m unsure if I mentioned getting a story accepted by Chicken Soup for the Soul in their upcoming cat-themed anthology, Lessons Learned from my Cat. My contributor copies came in the mail a few days ago, and while it was great to see “Furry Angels” among the tales, there are many wonderful stories in there. It was great.

It feels like the journey to become a fulltime writer is finally starting to come true, little by little. ^_^
