So on November 26, 2018 Stephen Hillenburg - the creator of the famous 90s
Nickelodeon show SpongeBob (and other works). He died at the age of 57 from complications in ALS. You don't know how much this makes me sad. I remember watching Spongebob growing up (with my brother, sister, and grandfather). It was silly, stupid, but it was enjoyable and sometimes it had lessons too. Even as I write this down one of the Spongebob episodes is playing in my head (When Spongebob sang with Plankton about the F.U.N song to be his friend). I'll miss all those characters Spongbob, Gary (Meow!), Patrick, Squidward, Mr. Krabs, Plankton, Mrs. Puff, and so many other slew of characters. He did say he would continue to create Spongebob as long and as much as he can. Well, thank you Stephen Hillenburg for a wonderful cartoon you passed onto us kids growing up in the 90s. #Rip #Youwillbemissed #I'mReady!
I mean, am I even supposed to be feeling this way already? I guess it is normal it being my first time, but I'm starting to think I'm jumping the gun too soon? That maybe I should do it in January (no later than January though, that's a given). So I can, at least, get my bearings together and prep, get my social media presence presentable and noticeable. I suppose I can play it by ear then; so DEC-JAN could be the round about time - I guess this is an earlier "heads-up" and not last minute, but definitely will post on a frequent. It would be nice though if it came out ON New Years. I wonder if that would be really cool or just a bad sell? lol Or make it Free for that one day. Hmm...I guess we'll see when its time. Keep you posted!
I've literally been dreaming about this day as long as I can remember and although it didn't come out as planned (being traditional published - but hey, things happen for a reason, right?) I am still excited that I can soon call my self A Self-published Author and heck just author period is making me giddy. Since I was eleven-years-old and writing several stories in my notebook - one of which called Adventures of the Teens - Maybe one day I'll write it? At twenty-six years old, this is happening. I told myself that I couldn't wait another year and not be an author. Before 2019 I will post my book. It's already getting edited and proofread, I'll do a double check over, and both covers (for one and two; I better get started on it! If Brent Weeks can dish out the Night Angel Trilogy I can too in a few months). Soon after I get the edited version of my story and the covers, I'll post on Amazon (Ebook) and Lulu (Paperback). Then, direct everyone where everyone can buy it. This is an amazing feeling and it hasn't even happened yet!
