Thank you

Thank you to everyone who commented on yesterday's post about the pressure I feel as I try to balance my dream of becoming a published writer and my life as a mom. I was feeling pretty low when I wrote that blog entry. I honestly didn't see much point in my continuing to strive for a goal that seems so impossible. Through your encouragement, however, I've seen that it would be wrong for me to give up on my dreams--wrong for both me and my children. (What kind of example would I be setting?) I truly appreciate your comments. I've taken them all to heart and will respond to each of them in the next few days.

Thank you all again.


  1. You are so welcome , dear ... Glad that my little bit could have helped !

  2. awesome!

    and remember, if you want to write about Jeb, 100 words a day for ten days is 1000 words. voila! a short story is born!

  3. Aww I'm glad you came to a decision that made you happy!

    And I'm with Tara. I read your 100 words almost every day and always wonder where the rest of the story is!

  4. Thanks for your comments, everyone!

    Caitlin and Tara: I've never thought that my 100-word pieces could amount to much. I thought that's all they were. But you're making me see them in a new light: maybe they could be something more. Thanks for your encouragement.
