Milestone of the 1st

Since today is my 1st time as a guest blogger for Romance Junkies what better topic than 1st’s. I’m very excited to be a regular monthly blogger at RJ. I’ll be blogging here every month on the 28th .

This past year I had a few 1st milestones.

First book contract.
First publisher.
First editor.
First book published.
First review.

With all these firsts I celebrated these milestones in some way. There are a lot of firsts out there. I still remember my 1st job I had then the 1st paycheck from that job I got. My first day of college. My first day after college when I realized I had to find a career. LOL.

Some of the firsts that made me cry. The first time I held my niece after she was born. She was so tiny and precious Then more of my nieces 1st’s. First step, word and time she ate solid food.

As I mentioned there are many firsts out there. Many milestones of the 1st to celebrate.

Now that I’ve had a few 1st in my writing career and with a New Year approaching I plan to have some 2nd’s and beyond. They are to be celebrated just like 1st’s.

Here’s wishing you a happy new year of many 1st’s and lots of 2nd’s and beyond.

What are some of your 1st’s?

    Hi McKenna – sounds like a hectic year of firsts for you. I got my first book contract in 2008 too, but the book’s still not out yet. So it looks like 2009 will be another year of firsts – the one I’m really dreading is “First Book Signing.” I use a pen name, and can’t decide which will be more embarrassing – no one showing up to my signings, or someone showing up and then me forgetting which name to write in the books?!?!?! Hope you have lots more happy firsts and seconds in 2009!

    Way to go McKenna! Here’s to you!!!

    The only first I really care to remember was when I was in the Police Academy some 30 years ago. I had to do pull ups which as a girly girl I was not even close to accomplishing that feat. So in the first 8 weeks of training we had to do just one pull up. I was in the gym every night just hanging there and couldn’t pull myself up no matter how hard I tried, Then at the end of 16 weeks we had to do 2 pull ups. I was so frustrated that I couldn’t do 1. The night before our physical fitness test I am in the gym and voila I did 2 pull ups just like that. I couldn’t believe it and I told no one. I thought it was a fluke. So the next day I am in line to do my pull ups. I was the second to last person in my platoon of say 35 people. Everytime a woman completed their pull ups my SGT would ask me if I saw that. When it was my turn to perform I did my 2 pull ups. I was so proud but all the SGT said was you know you could of went home last weekend if you did just one. Another instructor broke free from his station and came and shook my hand. Talk about being proud as a peacock. At the end of 6 months training I had to do four and I kept at it until I accomplished that goal too.
    Love & Hugs,
