The Writer's Life
One thing about the writer's life that struck me like a fun surprise party where I'm the clueless surprised one was the support system writers provide. The writers I've met encourage, strengthen, brace, foster, reassure, spur, sustain, and fortify me. Daily. I have no idea why I was surprised (shocked really) by this support system, but I was. And continue to be. Daily.
Some of these writers I've met in person, others I've connected with through blogs, Twitter, or emails, but the result is always the same - a community who extends a hand and assists me as I build my writer's life, brick by brick, word by word. And I thank you, each of you, for helping me wrap myself more comfortably in my writerly skin.
Was there anything that surprised you about the writer's life?
