I’m about a quarter through my final revisions and because I changed directions a bit with the story-ok, a lot, I am having to rework some chapters and add new material in with the old. It’s exciting to see how the work comes together but even more exciting to see how my different characters are developing and expanding as I sit with them a bit longer and give them a larger part of the story.
The most flattering aspect of this journey is the love and support of my friends. I am so fortunate to have the most real no bullshit women in this city who have my back. We don’t spend time talking about others, rather we spend times talking about how to build each other up. We are all at different life stages, but we all appreciate and understand each other as women and survivors whether it’s of failed marriages, the pains of motherhood or even diseases that wreck our very will to live. We are kindred spirits with our backs against each other ready to defend our tribe against the world.
I can’t even quantify my gratefulness any more than I can quantify their loyalty. I can tell you that when a women has friends who are this supportive and this real, she will move mountains, and she will achieve her dreams.
Whether you have supported me for years or shorter, close or far, please know, that I recognize you, and I appreciate you. I didn’t think I was anything until you showed me; I am a writer. I have a voice, and people who want to hear it.
