I'm happy to say I have one. Well, several.
I write grants and coordinate corporate training for a local community college. I'm a mom, cook, chauffeur, etc. And I'm a writer.
I'm lucky. I get paid to write. I'm fortunate enough to have eight nonfiction books under my belt, with four more contracted works in progress. Being paid makes it a real job. And I'm very appreciative of the opportunities I've been given.
As I struggle to make a go of my fiction, I consistently feel blessed to have had the chance to see my name on the cover of a book. It's given me an infinitely stronger appreciation for the work that goes into the backside of the production. And that much more desire to see my name on the cover of my novel.
