I’m immortal, in an ‘I published a book’ kind of way. – Reblog

Love it when a blog friend (this one is an absolute gem) publishes their book.
It’s like, a bit of you win when they win. As we are on this journey together. ❤️

From famine to feast.

I published a book. I’m immortal now, like Ozymandias. [i] I’ll exist long after the last tree has fallen and the last river has turned to dust.

The editing and formatting were work. I made it, however, and under my self-imposed deadline. Unfortunately, since publishing, the “not worthy” gremlins have been busy.

My inside voice is convinced this isn’t a “real” book. It’s a compilation, so it doesn’t count…
