Thank you to everyone who read and commented on the last blog post I Want To Write, But What About My Shame? Yesterday I had my best day for views and readers ever, and I appreciate everyone that commented and told me a bit about their journey.
We need to network, we need to speak up, we need to write. We never have to worry about too many voices joining the dialogue. There is room for everyone’s story, we are all unique, no one will step on toes. And each person who comes forward brings others with them.
One day, there will be no need for silence. Won’t that be brilliant?
So, on a high from yesterday, I joined some writing sprints this morning with one of my writer’s groups, The Creative Academy for Writers. I have a deadline to meet; I have a rough draft to complete by March first. And today I wrote three essays for that memoir. I think I can do this. And, if I do, it will be the first time I have reached a goal on something “work” related. Wow. I won’t crow yet. There are still essays to complete. But I am feeling good.
It is a lovely afternoon. Hot and bright, my perfect weather. I feel like I am on vacation.
