On the Road Again. . .
Today's blog post comes to you from the Oregon coast. For over a week now, my husband and I have been motorcycling across America. I'd rank today as one of our toughest riding challenges ever! From Idaho, across Oregon and Washington, we traveled curvy mountain roads in the rain, cold, and strong winds. But we weren't about to quit. Not so close to our goal. You see, after a 4-yr quest, we now have only one state left (California) in our challenge to ride our motorcyle through each of the 48 continental United States. Lord willing, we will accomplish our goal in the next couple of days.
When we first decided to tackle this challenge, I presented my husband, David, with a black and white patch of the States along with a set of various colored Sharpies. The project of coloring in each State as we traveled through it seemed daunting.
Writing a whole book--filled with chapter after chapter of an unfolding tale--can seem like an equally overwhelming goal. I am happy to proclaim, though, even the most gargantuan goal can be reached if you pace yourself while being ever-mindful of the ultimate end. Wherever you are on your road to publication. . .remember, it's not just the destination--it's the journey. Enjoy the ride!
