Pen to paper

I used to write. Before husband and kids and work and – well, life! – took over, I wrote. And I think I wasn’t half bad at it, either. I’ve been published in literary magazines and campus publications during college, but since then, I have seriously chickened out on pursuing this dream.
Husband keeps saying I should write again. I used to shake my head and ignore him, but lately the fire inside has been hotter, the urge as strong as it was years ago.
I’m participating in an online multi-day chat with numerous authors of many genres, and am enjoying the chatter immensely. One author spent time this evening encouraging me to work at publication, and to write again.
Maybe having someone who doesn’t have a personal stake in it made the difference, and maybe I will never be “THAT author” but I am an author, and I am going to pursue becoming a published one.
That, my friends, is yet something else on my life list that I shall accomplish!

About braultfam

I'm a married, often-harried mom of a busy darling dancing diva in her early teen years. I wrangle a houseful of furry children while homeschooling the kid, reading (mainly digital books these days), and writing. And let's not forget, taking time to travel when possible, because we are definitely a family who loves making memories together from PA to FL...I other words, I'm just your average superwoman!
