They don't tell you this. I have never read it in any book, blog, or post.
I'm grinding my teeth. Like very rigidly. I have never done this in my entire life. I have resorted to wearing retainers while I sleep as to try to cut down on the detrimental impact I am having upon my poor teeth. I have to get up in the middle of the night and walk around our house, go drink some water, and fully wake up in order to stop the grinding.
I go to yoga every morning at 8AM every day of the week.
I should not be this stressed.
What does 100 days until my book launch look like? It's very energy packed. I am writing blogs, posts, having pictures made, trying to promote, promote, promote, run email campaigns, design email campaigns, and ninety two other things I didn't realize I would need to do.
Like Monday of next week is officially 100 days until launch on May 29th, and I have giveaways I have been working on. This is a one woman team right now. I worry that I annoy my closer friends with all my posts, but if I don't bombard my closest friends then the distant girl in California may never hear of my book, and I have quite large goals. For example, I want to sell 2,000 copies this year, and really I think if I work hard enough I could sell 5,000.
But what does 100 days until launch really look like?
Lots of praying. I am actually trying to pray for the women who will read my book. I want it to move their hearts, soften their hearts, and mostly encourage their hearts. I don't want my book to collect dust in the corner of my bedroom. I want it to move. So lots of prayer. For my own sanity as well.
My life outside of my book world. Well we have extremely good news. We have finished our kitchen. In two months we have really flipped our house upside-down. You might as well call us Chip and Joanna Gaines, except I am not convinced they do any of the real work. The real work looks like 3am mornings, 7 nights in a row. Anyways, check the flip out. We're a little proud.
