Inspiration !

As I had stated before in my first post I recently started writing again after a long hiatus of raising kids and general folly of youth.

Lately though I was feeling a bit wavering of my talents. I thought perhaps I’d lost it over the years, but I trudged on. Making sure I try to write everyday  and entering contests even if I was unfamiliar with the genre. 

This morning I awoke to the most satisfying email ever. I entered a short story contest about a month ago (The 1000 Likes Contest I mentioned on Wednesday, May 22, 2013) and I was informed this morning that I had won!

No cash prize, but I don’t write for money anyway. I just feel … validated and inspired in a way that I am finally listening to my heart and soul and doing something I should have been doing long ago, and if it brings money someday then all the better.

But, I write to leave a piece of me behind when I’m gone one day and because the characters in my head insist to be heard 😉 So, if you see me on Amazon I expect purchases to be made… Thank You dear readers 🙂

      1. This is very true. At times it is hard to tell whether we are being legitimate critics or just kicking ourselves. That’s when you let someone else look over it.
