The one where I am inspired...

Is it just me are are the pay it forward author interviews inspiring?

Having some downtime I've spent a carefree afternoon reading through the various blogs soaking up the words of wisdom from some interesting people.

It's nice to know I'm not the only one who suffers doubts about my writing or the fact that everyone at some stage ponders about throwing in the towel.

So I arm myself with their words of wisdom and push myself towards the small shard of light, twinkling at the prospect of one day securing an agent and my dream of publishing becoming a reality.

Cold hands on cheeks as I slap myself awake. Now, back to my current reality of revisions.

I've enjoyed the interviews as well. It made me view the process of getting a book published in a whole new light. Published authors have been through the same feelings and obstacles that we are going through now...which means we're only one day and one step closer to joining them as published authors!

Lindsay,

It IS very cool! I think it's just great we are all so supportive of each other! We are a great community or awesome writers!

Now kick those revisions in their backside!
