I will say I very much enjoyed the process of self-publishing my first novel. I learned so much, and I know that it will only make me better, whether I continue to self-publish or go a more traditional route in the future. When I worked in television, I started out carrying my own camera, shooting my own footage, editing my own stuff. It made me a better broadcast journalist. I think the same principles apply to writing and publishing. Know what you’re doing, inside and out. And if you don’t know, learn. Also, finding the time to write when my children were home for the summer was a challenge, but I made it a priority, even when it meant some late nights and early mornings. Writing is my job. Second only to being a wife and mother. And it’s the best job in the world. You can take it with you wherever you go. I write on airplanes, in my car, in cafes, but mostly in my screened-in porch. So I guess my best advice is: treat writing like a job. Schedule it. Do it every day.

It still doesn’t feel real to me.

I took a long walk in my neighborhood this morning, and for the first time in over a year, I felt a real sense of peace. Sterigenics is leaving. As in gone for good, out of our community, and out of our lives. The medical sterilization company that left a swath of destruction in its path during a thirty-four-year reign of terror in the Western suburbs of Chicag...
