    Thank you. I sit here crying knowing that I have it in me. A wonderful metaphor for inspiring me to refocus and go for that blackbelt authorship.

    Thank-you again.

    Yes, Thank-you for that inspiring mini-video. I believe that those are good words to remember. I keep telling myself that I am not going to make it. Because I don't have a degree in writing and I don't know punctuation well. Or I can't, because I am so scattered in the brain right now. Good words, you're right, we all are those people, working towards a goal. Of writing a book or two, or more and need to practice. Regularly.

    I just spent this last Saturday at the Princeton Children's Book Festival where I met several well known children's authors.  They looked like me, talked like me, were nice like me, etc.  They were SO very regular.  But, they were the ones who beat the odds because they didn't quit.  And they were on the author side of the table.  We can all get there – we just need to persevere and not give up!
