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.
