Number 19 stands out to me as the best one and how true it is. I may only be a blogger and trying to be writer but the people I have met on my journey have been absolutely amazing. There is like an instant connection and the support is amazing, I have never known anything like it anywhere I have worked over the years.
My first ‘meeting‘ of authors was at The Writers Holiday in Wales nearly two years ago, a welcome that was rich in friendship which was to last. I learnt a lot and was given so much advice, enthusiasm and courage to keep going and to never give up. I heard all their stories as no one is as lucky as JK Rowling or can write a book and get publicity like 50 Shades of grey. The struggle and determination definitely makes for a good author even if you do have to publish yourself. Everything is worth it in the end and you just have to keep going, that is what I am now telling myself. It is hard to not fall into a rut or bad habits and sometimes to even keep going but then you have your FaceBook friends, how amazing are they! Apart from my friends and family my Nanny Cool FaceBook friends are all authors most I have never met but will comment, support, give advice and are always there for you. I think writers are the best people on earth and I love all of them.
These flowers are for all the writers out there wherever you are. Xx
