There are truly some good people in the world and I'm so glad that many of them are in my world. Some of the main ones for me lately:
Karen Rose. Can I just say I really love her? Yes, you already know that. But, I sent her an e-mail to tell her how much I loved her book and she's been e-mailing me a couple of times reminding me not to give up. How cool is that?
My friend Deb. She's working with me on revisions, keeping me positive and sharing her own masterpieces with me. She is an inspiration without even realizing it.
Monarch of the Glen. Yes, I watched the series finale. Again. I actually cried this time. And it just fills my heart with how much that show inspires me to be the best writer I can be and to write my Scottish stories with no frills, cliches or worn out plot devices. Just to write stories from my heart so that if I (for some strange reason) never get published, I'll still never regret a SINGLE moment spent on writing a piece of fiction.
My blog friend Eve who, out of the blue, has offered to send me a book that I've been wanting to read for months. Just out of the kindness of her heart.
And my blog friend Michelle who reminded me today why I joined my chosen profession and how thankful I should be to be able to make a positive difference in children's lives.
