31 Days: Day 19 “who”

Who has encouraged me in this writing journey?

Wow. I almost feel like someone at an awards banquet – I know I will forget someone. 

Mark Eckel – He was the first person to tell me that I needed to write!

Sharon Ruff – She read my work and couldn’t believe I didn’t have an editor.

Myrna Folkert – She invited me to her writer’s group.

Susie Finkbeiner – She took a chance and was the first to accept one of my submissions on her blog.

My writer’s group – Hours of laughter and encouragement!

Mom – Listening to my heart and understanding how it beats differently.

Mike – Challenging me and still accepting me for who I am.

My children – I overheard them: “Someday, my mom is going to be a famous children’s author!” I laughed.

Our church! – Uniquely beautiful and so vibrant. “Maybe your book will be one we read in Book Club!!”

Without these dear people, I wouldn’t have the nerve to claim the gift: “writer”.

And every writer has a list of people such as the one above who have encouraged them when articles are rejected and posts bomb and discouragement abounds. 

Thank you. Thank you. Thank you.

    1. I didn’t think I had that many until I thought about it. I realized people had been telling me similar things in the various parts of my life.

      While it might not be that long of a list, you have people who think the same. If you haven’t joined a writers group, I HIGHLY recommend it! Best single thing I’ve ever done as a writer.
