Let’s face it, plenty of us love to write but do we have the chops to become professional writers? For many years I wanted to write. I would stutter and then stop, stutter then stop. My computer was littered with fragments of stories I had attempted.
I think we all possess that fear of rejection. No one wants to put themselves out there and hear negative things about the work you poured your heart into. So finally I took the step and wrote more than a few paragraphs.
My husband encouraged me to continue and continue I did until I had a full length novel.
