Day 30 of the 31 Days of Books Giveaway: If You Could Go Back in Time and Give Advice To Your Younger Self, What Would You Say?
January 30th, 2014

Congratulations to Katt Lloyd, who won yesterday’s drawing! I’ll be emailing Katt to arrange delivery of her choice of book.

We had a flood of comments on yesterday’s blog regarding romantic gestures. Nice to see romance is alive and well out there! Just a reminder, anyone who ever commented on the blog in January will be entered in the big Feb.1 drawing. Three winners will receive the book of their choice and a gift card. This includes Hall of Fame winners.

Okay, on to today’s question: If you could go back in time, what advice would you give your younger self?

This is a tough one. Things that seem like poor decisions in hindsight may actually have led you to a place in your life with things that you treasure now. For instance, I got married very young, and it didn’t work out. Do I regret that? No, because it gave me my children. But one thing I would tell myself is to make education a priority. Had I gone to college, I could have majored in something to do with writing. I’d find a way to make that happen if I could go back. As it turns out, I was able to develop my skills enough on my own to get published, but maybe I could have had a full time job for all these years that was writing related.

What about you? If you could give advice to your younger self, what would you say? Comment to be included in a drawing to win a paperback title from my backlist!

    Dont get married and have kids at a young age. Finish college, and make lots of money. Find out what you want and who your gonna be before you become a mother and responsible at a young age.

    In September of 1999 – Set an alarm to prevent you from oversleeping. This way you do not miss taking your infant son down to your grandmother’s for their daily visit.

    Especially on the day of her doctor visit. Perhaps if she had gotten to see him and hold him (as she loved to do since he came home from the hospital), it would have given her incentive to fight to live more.

    That’s the only regret that I had….And it tears me up inside.

    Don’t listen to your peers when it comes to what’s cool. Stand up for yourself no matter what or who.
