I could use a boost of writing confidence, so I went back to the cards and notes I received after my memoir was published in 2013. It was a delight to read the words people took the time to write to me. My heart is warmed! What I want to do with my writing is to reach people, to tell them a little bit about the human experience that they may have been unaware of. I did it once; I can do it again!
This also makes me think I should write a note to a favorite author. Is there an author you can write to? Do you make it a habit to reach out to authors? Could you? I can guarantee the author will so much appreciate it. I appreciated the notes I received back then, and I think I appreciate them even more now.
