Alas, my husband's Jack Russel puppy is sick and wanted attention, the phone rang, dogs barking at imaginary squirrels or maybe a leaf moved the wrong way...who knows. People coming in and out...sigh.
However, yes there is a silver lining, an author I e-mailed yesterday responded suggesting that I purchase a book that she found helpful when she began to self-publish. Since she makes five figures a month, I thought what do I have to loose, five bucks? And I don't regret that decision! In one afternoon the first chapter answered many questions that I've spent months trying to figure out. I can't wait to see what other gold mines I uncover!
The bottom line is, even though the day didn't go as planned (I've only written about 200 words), I still accomplished a lot giving my special day a happy ending :)
