Progress on Book 2

The next book that I am working on, I had actually completed quite a few years ago and submitted to a number of publishing companies. All my efforts were rejected for one reason or another, mostly due to the need for an agent. I shelved the book for quite a while and then last year began to revisit it. There was something about the book that troubled me but I could not figure out a good solution to it. Eventually I began to edit the book and today I am really grateful that I am doing so.

As a result of editing the book, I began inviting other occupational therapists to share their comments and experiences and am very much enjoying the amazing therapists that I am meeting. It is so inspiring to be in touch with each of them, to hear their professional experience and professional opinions.

There are times when the negativity of those who do not understand what occupational therapy is gets too much and I wonder why I continue with a profession that is so mis-understood. Then I interact with a fellow occupational therapist and am reminded how incredible the profession is.

Thank you to all the wonderful OTs who take the time to interact and share their experience and expertise. Thank you to all the wonderful OTs who do such wonderful work and make a positive impact in the world.

I look forward to my final polished version of my book being complete. In the meantime, I am very much enjoying the wonderful connections being made and doors opening just from the process of editing a work I thought I was going to just leave on the shelf. I suppose the saying is true, for everything there is it's time and perhaps the time is right to finally complete this book and bring it to print.
