Sodaro's Stories

Back on Track…

Filed under: Writer's thoughts — michelle sodaro @ 6:51 pm

Ironically…the name of the series for which book 1 and book 2 practically wrote themselves is Back on Track…and with this being the beginning of a new month, I felt an overwhelming urge to get things in my writing life back on track as well as my doctorate life and my actual life. All of the these things tend to fall by the wayside as other things take priority or as emotionally I fall down once again.
One year ago this weekend, I watched one of the best people I have ever known pass on to the other side of life…and I know he is watching over me. I feel his presence in every thing that I do. He is the one that pushed me to be the writer that I always claimed to be and I will be forever grateful for his gentle guidance and support. It is because of his push that I now have 4 books written, that I have my 3rd doctorate paper almost completed, that I had the strength to step down from the job where I took care of everyone else to a job where I take care of myself.
The third book of the series will be my friend’s story. I need to write it. I need to heal…and I need to do this now. That doesn’t mean that I am putting Arianna off again…I am going to work on both novels. Arianna is on chapter 15 and is solid in the premise of the novel. The characters are set and the story line is strong. #3 in the series is just starting, but the novel needs to be written. Starting in June, I will have only my 4th doctorate paper (I am not taking a class in addition to the paper) to work on…which will free up some focus. I can do this. The stories are different enough that I will keep them separate. Arianna will still be the primary, but I will write my friend’s story when Arianna has me blocked.
Thank you, my friend. For knowing what needed to be done so that I could live the life I was meant to live. I only wish I could have shared more of it with you. Thank you for watching out for me.



  1. I’d love to read this story when you finish it. He is so proud of you, I know it.

    • You will certainly get one the first copies. I feel his presence in everything I do.
