Road to Joy

My latest novel is almost through with final edits and is just pending one last critique. *SQUEEEE* It’s always great finishing a book, until that nagging urge to write another pops up (almost IMMEDIATELY). But, I promise I’ll enjoy the feeling of triumph. Today at least. 🙂

Here’s a song for anyone else experiencing their own ‘Road to Joy’. Happy Friday, hope you have a really great weekend. XO

“Have you ever been in love? Horrible isn’t it? It makes you so vulnerable. It opens your chest and it opens up your heart and it means that someone can get inside you and mess you up.”
