The Blanket (or…I’m writing a Book!)

Last year I made a promise to myself. One of this lofty promises that I never thought would actually matter. You know the type…you make them in hopes that they will somehow give you the motivation you need to finish what you need to finish or to accomplish that long term and out of reach goal…that one.

This was a silly promise but I thought I’d share it with you today. 

It is quite simple. I wanted a book deal. I was working on a few different proposals all at the same time and wasn’t sure if and when I would be able to finally say, I have a book. I knew the right opportunity would come along…I just wasn’t sure when.

I also wanted a blanket. A very expensive oversize bed throw from Restoration Hardware in Arctic Fox. Something I would never be able to afford on my designer salary.

I’m sure you’ve put two and two together but just in case, I told myself if I ever got a book deal I would buy myself the blanket with the advance.

Today, I’m ordering the blanket.


I have a book.
