The Day I Got Published.
I take on the Baton of Blogchatter Ebook Carnival from Nidhi whose ebook ‘Wheels of Time‘ is also part of the mix. About Nidhi’s ebook: These are 12 people, 12 tales and 12 months. Which says “When The Unexpected Leads to Expected.”
It was on 22nd May 2018 that I technically became a published writer. The articles I had created so carefully and studiously were compiled into an eBook. I haven’t really mentioned this enough but I am really thankful to Blogchatter for helping me strike this off my list. I had always thought that becoming published would be an impossible task. I saw it as a mountain that I could never possibly climb and if I did, it would be something I achieve in my 30s or 40s. Blogchatter changed that for me and gave me a chance to be published at 20.
I still remember the day it happened. I had just written my last exam and was excited about the book launch. I could hardly keep calm and when the link finally came up my happiness knew no bounds. I shared it immediately on every social media channel I have. I earned many accolades and good wishes. It was an achievement in itself and one that I am not forgetting anytime soon. The ebook finally held its train at 250 downloads. It is about 200 than I had expected and the reviews have been encouraging as well.
I know I am not anywhere close to being a seasoned writer but this ebook carnival has ended up being a steep learning curve for me both as a writer and as a person. I have made so many new friends in the blogging community and read so many inspiring and thought provoking stories. I have better communication skills now and a more positive outlook on the whole world.
There are many lessons that I carry within myself but don’t acknowledge consciously. I don’t know what they are but I will carry them with me throughout my life. April and May 2018 have truly been developmentally rich couple of months for me.
