Thank you!

36 weeks ago, I shared my very first blog post, The Origin of Mod. I had a very specific story arc in mind: sharing my personal high school experience of my quest for a date—any date—to a high school dance, combined with how I traveled the journey of my mom’s cancer diagnosis and ultimately, her death.

When I began the journey, I had already written the majority of the stories and knew how this story would end, with my last first kiss.

I was intentional in keeping all of my stories close to 500 words. Why? I wanted my readers to get a glimpse, a taste, of what my story involved. I also wanted it to be an easy read that people looked forward to, knowing they could enjoy it in one sitting.

What’s next? If you follow my social media, you may have seen that I’m writing a book.

I wholeheartedly believe that all of humanity is connected to one another. When we share our stories, someone, somewhere, feels a pull, a familiarity, and that draws us together. I feel called to write down more of my story and organize it into a book format. It is a wonderful work in progress!

There are literally only so many hours in a day to write. I have been advised by some trusted friends in the publishing industry to turn my energy towards writing my book. This means the content readers have been enjoying in my blog will now change.

I promise I will continue to share glimpses of my story as this process unfolds. My next task is to write the over 30 stories I’ve got outlined from my childhood in the 1970s.

I have a lot of other types of pieces that I’ve written and I want to challenge myself to share them here as well.

Your support is still invaluable to me. Throughout these 36+ weeks, I have embraced, and cherished every single comment, email, and thought my readers have shared with me. Please stay with me as I traverse this process!

Thank you to everyone who has supported me up until this point: my family, beautiful friends, Light Writers, Gaggle, every single friend from the 80’s who gave me permission to use their faces and names, and my new Bob Goff Workshop Crew who are perhaps cheering the loudest.

I am so excited for what is to come and I sincerely hope you will be alongside me for the adventure!
