I’m stuck right now. I’m at the stage in my book publishing journey where I am struggling between doing what professionals tell me and listening to my gut. The manuscript is done. I simply need an experienced editor to wave their magic wand over the words so I can get busy with layout and cover design. But I’m paralyzed.
My gut tells me to stay true to my voice. Professionals tell me to go with industry best practices. My mentors suggest that I go back to my original goal and with that in mind, go with my gut. What is your story? Do you have people in your life you can trust? Do you listen to them? Do you give yourself the time you need to reflect on what is right for you?
