It feels a bit strange to do a post on a Sunday but I have to work tomorrow and I wasn’t on Blogger at all last week so here I am, posting on the weekend.
Its not like football is on anyway...but The Walking Dead is on tonight. What a premiere that was last week. Holy smokes! Didn’t see that one coming…neither did Carl. Amiright? Okay, I won’t say anymore. Don’t want to ruin it for anyone. And if you’re not caught up, hurry! Me thinks it’s gonna be a fast paced rest of the season.
Anyway, enough zombie talk. I've been tossing an idea around in my head for the last few weeks and Friday I think I may have convinced myself to do it. Maybe. You how sometimes we think we have great ideas and then they turn out not so great, while others turn out fantastic? I'm not sure which category this one falls into just yet. But I'm gonna give it go and see where it lands.
I’m think I’m going to write a second self-help book.
I should probably mark this post down somewhere. February 21, 2016. Let’s see how long it takes to really get it written. The first one isn’t even in print and I’m already thinking about the outline for the second. But seeing how the first one took what? Two, three years, by the time it’s officially published – I’d say I have plenty of time to write the second. I’m not worried. It's not like I have a deadline or anything.
While the first one deals with recovering from the Relational Trauma of discovering your partner is a sex addict, the second one will address moving forward in a relationship with a sex addict. Sometimes I forget just how difficult it was (and still can be) to navigate this journey together.
There were times I wanted to run away. There were times I wanted to punch Devin in the face. But the times that I laughed and felt overjoyed far outweighed those tough times and I’m grateful I stayed. I think I want to share that hope with others too. So yeah, I think I’m going to give it a try and see where it goes. If it turns out like a piece of crap, well, at least I gave it a shot.
Anyone else a Walking Dead fan? Or have you tried a project only to have it fail? Or better yet, have it turn out better than expected?
Depending on my work schedule, I may be posting on Sundays for the next few weeks.
