Being in an author is something that takes bravery. It may not seem that way to everyone perhaps they have this glories version of Danielle Steel sitting in a home in a wealthy San Francisco neighborhood not thinking of the hours she poured into her works now I am not comparing my writing to Danielle Steels I am a different kind of writer altogether. I am saying that everyone an author publishes a book it Takes a bit of courage and over time we learn to take the criticism that comes along with that in a matter of stride.
I have a passion for what I do the stories I tell and in some way I think that in itself gives me a measure of courage and certainly my Faith I believe without a shadow of doubt the Lord guides my pen and that gives me the courage to push my limits and it gives me the strength to overcome the blows.
As a writer I am also an observer and always on the look out for inspiration its a good thing that we are surrounded by inspiration. But I also know that not everything is meant to be written about.
I began writing when I was a Freshmen in high school at least that is when I began writing seriously but then I rarely showed my work to anyone my Freshmen English teacher being one exception and she encouraged me to work on my writing and even to begin submitting it, it took a couple of years for me to find the courage to do that but eventually I became more confident in myself and my gift.
