I've been a "writer" since high school when I started keeping a journal. There's something about taking pen to paper that feels magical. I still keep a hand-written journal and I imagine I always will becasue I've never completely transitioned to "writing" on a computer screen. I find the actual act of writing relaxing.
I didn't share my writing until 2001 when I jumped on the My Space bandwagon and discovered blogging. Blogging has been a fantastic creative outlet and one of my favorite passtimes since then. Everyone these days seems to have a blog, but back in the day, it was very boho to post blogs.
Friends would tell me, "Lisa, you should write a book" and I'd smile but I never really imagined publishing my work until last year when I was approached by a friend in my industry to co-author a book with her. Writing content is the easy part, the editing and actual publishing process is grueling. It kicked my ass. But I am thrilled to tell you that on July 31, 2016, our book published and is now available on Amazon and Kindle. You can take a peek at our book here (for $9.95 you can own it).
