The Next Step

My novel is back in my hands, complete with a 6 page, single spaced, typed letter AND line-by-line edits on every single page (There are 220 pages). My mentor has specifically laid out a challenge I can't wait to tackle. THIS is what I have been needing!

THIS is more than I think I can handle.

I might think I can't handle it, but I KNOW I will. It's the next step towards my dream and nothing is going to hold me back.

The Dean of Undergraduate Nursing once said to me, "You'll never make it as a nurse."

But I did. I still am.

Someone, someday WILL tell me I won't make it as a writer.

But I will. And I will show them!


  1. oh great work!!! and you can do whatever you set your mind and heart to dream!!! just keep moving forward and it will happen!!!

  2. It's the keep moving forward part that's SO hard..but I think I can...I think I can...No...I will, because I've never before given up on something I believe in.
