On July 13, 2020, I published my first blog post called “Who am I?” Almost two years later, I am publishing my 100th post. Crazy.
Writing about writing
I’m not sure I’m any closer to discovering my brand or if I’ve better defined my future-grown-up-self pathway, but at least I’ve put a lot of coherent words on a page. For today, that’s enough. Maybe tomorrow the next big idea will emerge; I'm looking forward to that "Aha!" moment.
Designing a book cover
Of course, when you are publishing a book, you have to make important decisions. Hard decisions, sometimes. This is the story of how my cover design for "What Ronnie Sue Knew" came to be.
