It wasn’t enough to just put the words on the page because those words never told the whole story. They didn’t convey the overwhelming crush of responsibility that is holding another’s life in your hands. They didn’t convey that I felt lost and alone and overwhelmed. They didn’t convey that every one of those early tantrums brought me swiftly and easily to my breaking point – or that from those breaking points, I grew stronger and more resilient.
Today I am so thrilled to be at Literary Mama talking about why I write. Their After Page One series never fails to do everything it sets out to do – motivate, encourage, inspire. I’m so honored to have my story there and hope it does those things for you!
