Just stopped by to encourage you. Some people, including Loved ones, will tell you that writing isn’t a real JOB!!!! It’s a hobby. They will even tell you to get a REAL JOB!! so that you can start receiving benefits and a regular (steady) paycheck.

Those words can feel like daggers coming straight into your heart, Ouch! Don’t try to explain your gift to them, they wouldn’t understand, anyway. Instead keep writing and those who tossed the daggers will one day be looking for you to help them out! You have just been encouraged!

A single golf clap? Or a long standing ovation?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
