Welcome to my blog, thank you for stopping by. If this is your first time to my blog, it's nice to meet you. If you've been here before, welcome back.

My writing journey has begun. The road will have some bumps and detours. I only hope that the first hill is not too high, and the journey is long.

Hello Everyone - I Have Really Missed You All!

Wow!  It has been so long since I have been on my blog!  Sorry for my absence, sometimes life just gets ahead of you.  I hope all is well and I can't wait to catch up on what has been happening and how you are all doing.  I have been actively submitting.  Now, I am hoping I won't actively be receiving rejections. :)

I know it isn't Monday, but I am going to start with posting some inspirational quotes just to get back on track.  Hope you find them as inspirational as I did.

"The secret of getting ahead is getting started." - Agatha Christie

"You must keep sending work out; you must never let a manuscript do nothing but eat its head off in a drawer.  You send that work out again and again, while you're working on another one.  If you have talent, you will receive some measure of success - but only if you persist." - Isaac Asimov

"Believe in yourself and in your own voice, because there will be times in this business when you will be the only one who does.  Take heart from the knowledge that an author with a strong voice will often have trouble at the start of his or her career because strong, distinctive voices sometimes make editors nervous.  But in the end, only the strong survive." - Jane Ann Krentz

"Never, EVER give up.  Not ever. Not EVER. Ever EVER." - MaryJanice Davidson

So, everyone - Hello, Best Wishes and Good Things to you all!
