Gearing Up for Prose in the Park

I'm starting to feel a little overwhelmed and crazy as I get myself together for this year's Prose in the Park event.  It's on Saturday, June 4th from 11 to 6 at Parkdale Park (near Parkdale and Wellington).  It's a festival featuring local Ottawa writers and I'm going to be there with my books. (Paranormal romance, www.jclewis.ca for those interested in checking them out.)

Building a writing career is like building any small business.  It takes awhile to get going but so far, I'm encouraged by the feedback I've gotten.  Sometimes I think I'm crazy for even trying but if I can make writing work as a career, it would be the best possible outcome for me.  I enjoy it, the hours are flexible (allowing me to deal with my life's challenges as needed) and I can potentially go on earning income even after I die (which would then go to the boys to support them).
