Writing is a journey, one I truly love and enjoy, but it can sometimes feel rather lonely. Hour after hour, alone, at the computer, pouring your heart and soul into each word. But I’ve learned I’m not alone. In fact, I’ve been blessed to be in contact with some amazing people, both writers and non-writers.
I want to share a bit of that with you. Each week I’ll be spotlighting someone I’ve come in contact with during my journey. Thanks for stepping along side of me—all of you—during this exciting time!
Michele Trent, she’s a friend of the non-writing persuasion. My best friend to be exact.
When you see me mention going running with my friend on Facebook or Twitter updates, that’s her. In fact, this past November, we ran the Aflac Iron Girl race. Yep, that’s us wearing our finisher medals!
I figured it was only appropriate to spotlight her here since it’s her fault I’m on this writing journey to begin with.
Yep. You read right. It’s all her fault.
She was the instigator who said, “Well, just take the next step,” when I asked her what I should do with the first novel I’d ever written.
Bless her heart, she read that novel, too. *ducks head in shame *
She’s my biggest cheerleader and bestest friend. Thanks, Michele. You’re such a blessing to me.
