CONTRACTIONS HAVE BEGUN and Tessa Ruth Will Soon Be Born!

Greetings! I AM Tessa Ruth and I am a writer. I have been journaling since I received my very first furry pink Diary with a lock and key. I have stacks of treasured journals. Some fancy doodle embossed leather, or steno pads, black & white bound composition books with wide lines for penmanship class (wow I‘m dating myself)! Flip pads and 3 subject spirals; a pile of 6” mini books and numerous notebooks with yellow or singed smoky pages, survivors of a house fire. In a quick glance just now, I found one dated back to 1987 and I haven’t even included those boxed in my closet.  So, are you published, you might ask?  Some 20 years ago, I was a Feature Writer for a local small town newspaper and had many stories published; also included in my closet box. I’ve published newsletters and designed curriculum for children when I ran a Day Care Center.  I began earlier this year blogging on WordPress in hit and miss fashion.  So, if seeing your name at the bottom of a page which others are reading is being “published” then yes I am published.  But my life-long dream is to pen inspirational books both true and fiction which are on the Best Sellers List. That to me will be the day I am a published author.

Like many folks do, I put off my dreams for various reasons. Raising children, working jobs I hated because they paid more than writing, fear of rejection and the ever popular procrastination to name a few. But always in the backdrop of my existence was a big emptiness, an unsatiated desire to become all I know myself to be. For years I was able to excuse it away, finding little bits of fulfillment writing in my journals. Then as our 7 children grew and flew from the nest, my priorities also began to shift.  Ahh, but if I continue here, I’ll give away more of my life story then I’m ready to share! I’d rather you read the journey of “1Strongwoman!” off the rack of your local bookstore!

You see I have been heavy with child for some 30 years and Braxton Hicks contractions have begun. I always thought I’d have 1 more baby girl and I would name her Tessa Ruth. Tessa because my beloved brother still calls me Tess and Ruth because that’s what my Mama wanted to name me. I realized Tessa Ruth, which will be my pseudonym (pen name), is my Book Baby. All of these years and most especially these last 6 months have been preparing me for my new life as Tessa Ruth, renowned Best Selling Author/Speaker. I have set specific goals and am on track to have my Autobiography manuscript ready for publication by December of this year. “And I’m so excited, that I just can’t hide it! I’m about to lose control and I think I like it, like it!!!”

I look forward to expanding and personalizing my blog page. I have committed to post Monday, Wednesday and Fridays just to keep my creativity well oiled and slay the fear dragon. I hope to find mentors and genuine critics who will help my passion bloom. Ultimately, establishing a forum from which I can explode my ideas to millions is my purpose for this blog site

My I AM’s

These are my daily I AM’s, hung above my shower, blown up unto six separate posters. I recite them each day. Some of them are currently true. Some of them are in progress.
