Spidey’s Serene Sunday – Part 257 – Excitement

img_00411

“I am excited about what the future will bring, and I think the best is yet to come.”

Alonzo Mourning

Thank you so much Spidey for finding a quote so perfect for how I am feeling right now.

Actually, my feelings are a mixture of nerves and excitement.

It is literally a WEEK until my book baby is officially published!

A WEEK!

How has nearly twenty years passed, since I first had the idea for this book and started to write words on a screen?

Did I ever think that it would really be a ‘thing’?

No.

I never thought I would be a blogger, with an award winning blog, either. I just excitedly posted all manner of stuff, and people seemed to like it, then the best thing happened. I got recognised for it!

The same goes for my work. I always put 110% into my job, and the excitement I have for working with my class is palpable. And the rewards are huge, at the end of every year. Not financially. Everyone knows a teacher’s salary is rubbish. But emotionally. Seeing a child read a word for the first time, unaided, or crack the code of how to add a number to another, independently. Priceless moments. Watching them develop into these amazing little human beings with empathy, and seeing their imaginations grow, because we have helped them to learn to access the tools they need to succeed in life. No better feeling.

And similarly, I have an excitement for my book baby. Nervous excitement, as I said. You never know what might happen, but the feedback I have received from beta readers, and some advance readers has been enough for the excited butterflies to be going crazy in my stomach for the last few weeks! I can only hope that other readers feel the same about my story, too!

Who knows?

So… tell me, what excites you at the moment?

And… have you preordered, yet? The Kindle version is available to preorder, or the paperback will be out from the 9th Feb! Check out the blog tour that starts tomorrow!

And you can pre-order here.

Have a peaceful Sunday Peeps.  And enjoy your week! ❤

    Congrats on the book Ritu. I’m just getting back into blogging after many months of somewhat being present. Your book is done and all you can do is smile and celebrate. I love it.

    Many congratulations Ritu. All my best wishes for the book. I will get the kindle version soon.
    I am at a very confused phase right now but I have this strong feeling that the confusion is about to end and I will find my path very soon. And that is a good place to be in too. Sometimes you sense a wind that will push you in a certain direction and all you have to do is loosen up and be ready to be pushed. 🙂

    At the moment I am a beta tester for a new version of the video game I love to play. Signed an NDE, so can’t speak of it, but I am enjoying myself and am excited.

    I was waiting for Spidey, I just love people that are passionate about what they do whatever is what they do or the several things they do. I think passion is key for having a fun-interesting and happy life. People who don’t have it bore me and I find no use for them. I think is great your passion for teaching and for writing I believe.
    What excites me? It would be to learn more about this writing world. Spidey said that “the best is yet to come”. I believe him and that excites me.

Looking forward to getting the book delivered to my MacBook – I preordered!
