Well I have to say that I feel very optimistic.
Choosing to cut loose from the newspaper may well be the best thing that has happened to me in years.
Today I have four more articles to write on snoring products and then I'm free to work on the book. Huh? Wha?
I havent put a word on paper for the book since my mom took a turn for the worse and passed away in July.
Cathartic to say the least.
I also have made a new friend. I'm a frequenter at www.absoultewrite.com/forums .
