Real life kicked me off my writing wagon!

Children to support, no husband anymore, mortgage to pay ... the list goes on! Inevitably, my writing ventures, like most writers, did not make me an overnight sensation and I needed to go back to a "real job" in the "real world". Don't  get me wrong! I am grateful that I found one that I can really enjoy, but that emptiness in my soul has returned. It's that hole that develops when you aren't doing what you're meant to do. Back to feeling selfish because I want to write but have limited quality time with my now single parented children so I don't.

I got a wake up call the other day. Suddenly, an article that I'd placed on a content source site a while back sold. I felt that spark again. That little voice said, "Someone found your work and connected with it enough to spend money on it. They believed YOUR words would add value to their web site."

Now, I'm making it my mission to climb back in my wagon. Slowly, but surely, and this post is my affirmation and first step!
