a question for you

I’ve been, here and there, frantically working on the book. So many friends have left comments or sent notes offering me congratulations. Ohmygoodness, no. I have done nothing yet. At this point, I’ve looked at the tightrope very closely, glanced anxiously at the crowd below and taken a deep breath. That’s all. In other words, I’ve created a binder and written a few snippets that don’t yet fit into my outline. (And speaking of the outline, I don’t think I agree with it today.)


The Book’s Binder
But if you’re one of the sweet friends who have encouraged me, thank you from the bottom of my heart. And please keep it coming, if might be so bold. Many days I feel positively too young and inexperienced and wish I was better educated and better prepared. I am pitching a book at the She Speaks Conference at the end of July. I have to have three chapters ready to toss at someone. Someone important-looking, I’m sure. Welcome back, shy home-schooled girl
And yet, that’s how I know that it will be worth it. Because I’m scared. A good kind of scared. It must be important if it feels so risky. It must be what I really want if I’m willing to throw myself out there this way. I’m not even thinking about getting published or not getting published right now. That’s not in my hands. I’m thinking about doing my best, writing my heart out and giving this message a fighting chance.

Now for the question. (Sorry, this one is only for the ladies.) If you would like to be a part of my research (and inspiration) you can leave your answer in the comment box below or email me at everlypleasant@gmail.com


Have you ever been in a situation or field where you felt you were looked down upon merely because you are a woman? Describe this experience (whether you triumphed or not!)


Please share! 


Much love,
Everly

    how come this is the first i have heard of you writing a book??? I must pay closer attention. :)

    Is there a blog post where I can learn more about your aspirations? I haven’t been following for long so I am clueless.

    I would love to help – I situation I experienced came to mind immediately when I read your question, yet I’m not quite sure it’s exactly what you’re looking for. We should talk!
