Whether I know you personally or not, I am grateful for the time you take out of your busy schedule to read my blog. It means a lot!
One of the reasons I started a blog was not only to share my successes and failures (because, as writers we have both) but to share with you what I have learned and continue to learn.
It isn't easy being a writer. Sometimes we have to say 'no' when we'd rather go out to dinner over finishing our final draft. It would be far easier to 'put off' writing, because we don't have a boss leaning over our shoulder to get the work done. It would be great if we could get all the ideas we need for our next project in one fail swoop, but usually the ideas come in pieces.
In short, it would be nice if we had a nine to five job (and maybe we do AND we still write), but we keep writing.
Because we love it, that's why!
