Busy Hands Make Happy Hands

Did someone tell me that I would be busier after signing a book contract than before? I think they did, but somehow it didn't sink in.

As the release date for Thyme for Love comes closer (November 14th!), I'm racing to get my blog tour set up, write up interview questions and answers for those who want them, answer interview questions bloggers have sent me, design an invitation for my book launch celebration, develop an email list to send said invitation to, and so forth.

But despite the to-do list longer than my arm, I can say one thing.

I'm loving every moment!


If you're a regular visitor to this site you've  noticed that I've  changed the name of the blog from A Writer's Journey to my author name of Pamela S. Meyers, and added a new background and header, as I morph this site into a full website. My addy for this site will change to www.pamelasmeyers.com, but don't worry if you forget to change your bookmark, because the old addies for both my website and blog will forward to the new address.

In between all this, I'm editing Love Finds You in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin which needs to be turned into the editor by mid-November. 

Then I start plotting my next story and writing it! 

The busier I become, the more I love what I'm doing, and I realize this is what God has called me to do during this season of my life. He is blessing my socks off and in turn, I want to do what gives him pleasure. 

Kind of reminds me of that line from the movie Chariots of Fire, when the lead said that he felt God's pleasure when he ran. I thought to myself at the time how cool it would be to feel that way about something you are doing. 

Now I know what he meant!

So true, Pam. Like you said, even though I am crazy-busy, I'm loving it! Although, I would love to be able to work less hours at my "day job" so I could spend a little more time doing this crazy little thing called writing.

So excited for you...and love the new look of the blog!

Yes, I am very blessed to not have to have a nine to five job at this point. I don't know what I'd do if I had to do that. Cut out all but what's necessary I guess.

Very exciting, Pam! All the best with your new blog "look" and your blog tour--and, of course--your book! Yay!

Blessings!
