I have figured out the secret that motivates me to write. Believe it or not- It’s people! I KNOW! I’m as shocked as you are. But, I have found that if I surround myself with people who are interested in my story (and I in theirs) then we push each other to continue.I spent time this evening with 7 talented writers. Each with their own style, genre, and temperament and what I found were 7 people who wanted to see us all succeed.

I had the opportunity to see my work through their eyes and it was a gift. Honest critiques without malice or jealousy are hard to find, but I found a group of people who willingly lay it on the table and then offer ideas to fix what may stand out as less than perfect. They are a blessing and I am truly happy to be a part of such a wonderful team.

Thank you, InkSlingers! See you all next month.

I am...interesting. I am a writer, dreamer, mom, wife, veteran, friend, villain, and the wearer of many hats, but I don't look good in hats- go figure. I LOVE TO WRITE. I want to tell stories. I want to make you laugh, cry, and scare the crap out of you, and make you ask "why the hell did you do that?" I want to make you cheer my characters on or want to shake the crap out of them for things they say and/or do. I want to bring you along for the ride. Ready? Set?...READ!!!
