Reaching a Milestone

Today’s blog:  Your Truth

Writing is personal.  It is your journey.  The story you tell is your truth.  Sharing it with the world can be terrifying, yet wonderful at the same time.  It is a moment of surrender – from your imagination to the minds of others.

Writing is Hard

If you have ever started a book, you know it is a grueling process.  Yes, writing is hard.  The hours spent writing and re-writing are exhausting, but the final product makes it worth the effort.  Finishing a book is a huge milestone in a writer’s journey.


It doesn’t matter if it’s your first book or your tenth best-selling novel, the fear is the same.  You wonder: Will others like it?  Truth be known, it doesn’t matter.  Someone else’s opinion is exactly that – an opinion.  Remember, it is your story.  Share it fearlessly!
