I just started back work on my memoirs and I changed the title — From caterpillar to butterfly: One woman’s memoirs from struggle to triumph. I think that’s better. I wanted to use “From Caterpillar to Butterfly”. I just didn’t know how to do it until lately. That was always in the back of my mind, though.
I had given up on writing my memoirs for a while for a couple of different reasons: 1) lack of money and 2) a mental block. I think I may have a way to get the money, now, and I don’t think I am blocked any more. So, I am pursuing work on them again. And this time it is cheaper to write. Only about $3,000, instead of $12-15,000. That is a lot more workable and I get a lot more for the money. Even if it isn’t a bestseller, I am out far less money than before. I hope it will be a bestseller, though. I am an eternal optimist, but I will try not to be too disappointed, if it isn’t a bestseller.
