As of today, I’m a published author. As undeniably cool as it was to see my name on the covers people designed for me, it is even more mind-blowing to see my name on Amazon and Barnes & Noble. As an author. That is just so freaking cool!
I woke up at 11:55 last night because Aidan was up and all I could think was, “In five minutes it’ll be June 20. And I’ll be a published author,” and then I went back to sleep because my tired brain couldn’t process the enormity of that statement.
In my first day as a published author, so far I have worked out, done the breakfast thing, and changed a diaper. Pretty much life as usual. When I had Aidan on the changing table, I tried to tell him he was getting his diaper changed by a published author, and that that was a big deal. He was, and continues to be, unimpressed.
It’s ok. I’m excited enough for the both of us.
