Encouragement


I'm not going to lie, it's been a rough few months. The kind that keep you from doing what you love, and the kind that rip at your sanity. The past couple weeks have been particularly hard. I won't be going into detail, because it's my business, and I don't like to air my dirty laundry for all to see, but I will say this, I contemplated giving up writing for good, many times, and I'm so thankful to the people in my life that wouldn't allow that.
As of today, I'm starting fresh.
No more mooping about, no more stressing, and no more giving up on my dreams.
Why the sudden uplift in spirits?
I woke up this morning to a message on my Facebook wall. It was a simple, friendly inquiry about when I would be done with my book, and when they can read book two.
I wanted to cry.
Someone, other than family, has faith in my story! They want more of it.
So you see, I have to finish this story, if only for that one reader that gave me hope when I was ready to quit (again).
As a result, I'll be doing more updates on my WIP's on facebook and twitter, and  I will be doing a weekly update here to let those who care and support me know where I am in my adventures.
I'm looking forward to this new me, and this new attitude.
Now, onward! There are edits to be done, and worlds to create!

  2. I understand trudging through the sludge of life. That's where I've been this summer too. I'm so glad you found your encouragement and reason to keep writing!
