Begin Today

Admittedly, I haven’t experienced success in terms of what many in the publishing business deem success. But I have experienced enough, for myself, to know that I am on the right road.

Every time, I hear from one of my readers about how they are re-reading one of my books, it takes me to heights I cannot begin to explain. The books that really resonate with us, those are the ones we re-read. And, the fact, that I have a few supporters who not only supported me by purchasing the book once, but who continue to read my words…that’s a feeling I enjoy. So, no,  I haven’t sold a million copies. And, no, I haven’t made the bestseller list. Yet. I have reached a new level in  my writing career, though. I have to acknowledge that.

Many things inspire me to continue writing: rejection letters (especially form rejection letters), the voices that I continue to carry with me (the ones who share their stories), and those people who have supported me so far.

I won’t paint my picture any differently than it is because I love the view from where I am. No one forces these people to seek me out to tell me that they enjoyed the poetry book and have dog-eared some pages because they love the poems so much (I do this as well), nor is anyone forcing them to message me and say, I’m re-reading Tattered Butterfly Wings again because I can totally identify with this character or that character. I begin every day feeling renewed with inspiration to work toward my writing goals, and today is no different.

It’s hump day people. Keep going because there’s no telling what’s waiting for you on the other side.

Peace & Love,

Rosalind

About Rosalind Guy

I'm broken & my soul is weary/ my weary soul rebels, fights/ anything & anyone who tries to heal me/I beat my head against a wall of memories/ trying hard to break free from the chain of memories/ I can only be free by saying it so/ i weave a necklace from words and finally/ I find freedom/ free free free. As you can see, words are powerful to me. As Maya Angelou said, words are wallpaper of the soul. I have lots of nightmarish memories that threaten to break me, but I learned a long time ago about the power of words. They can be used to heal and destroy anything that threatens to destroy the person. Words coupled with love have the power to save and heal. I am author of three books: Skinny Dipping in the Pool of Womanhood, Tattered Butterfly Wings, and Blues of a Love Junkie. I am a high school English teacher. I am a former reporter. I am a mother. I am a woman. I am a fierce advocate for those who cannot speak for themselves, those who's voices go unheard.
