When Life Gives You Lemons...

Things never go the way you plan

I’m sure you’ve all heard when life gives you lemons make lemonade, a phrase intended as encouragement to make good out of a bad situation. I like lemons and I like lemonade, although when life sends difficulties your way it’s not so simple as making lemonade. I am a glass-half-full sort of person, much to the annoyance of some. Trying to see the positive in life’s curveballs can get you through a rough patch. However, when life sucks, I don’t partake in the sourness of those lemons, masked by a huge dose of sugar. I prefer to throw back those lemons and tackle things in my own way.

I had more than a few setbacks since this year started. I’ve had to put on my big girl pants and push through, even though I’d rather wallow in my misery. For instance, I’d planned on having my first book in six years published by now, but it hasn’t happened. I’ve had to push back the publication of Dawn-Wolf until the end of April. Crossing my fingers (does that even work) that I can keep to that schedule.

It's not just me that has had a lot going on though. My beta and proofreaders have had their fair share of lemons catapulted in their direction. If I have to wait a little longer so be it. I’ll not be making the same mistake I made years ago when I was a newbie author. Post-publication editing is not a good look. Although I’m not saying it may not happen, mistakes happen and typos etc can slip through the cracks.
Below I’ve left a link for a recipe for lemon curd. I love homemade lemon curd.


After changing my YouTube email I needed to set up a new channel, since I didn’t have many subscribers on my older channel/s I decided it was worth making the move now. My new channel shares the name of this newsletter, From the Author’s Desk. As I am starting from scratch I would love some subscribers. I currently have 1, which is far better than none.
