I know it can be done. I have heard it many, many times before. I have read it, discussed it, and ponder it until the cows came home; but today, I witnessed it! You wonder what “It” is, do you, Dear Bloggites? Well, let me explain “It” to you.
It is not sex, but something better, yeah, I said it, something better! It is watching someone work so hard and so long, trudging through the quagmire of memory and pain, to come out on the other side, wholer (is that a word? Well, I am using it!) than they were before and having the proof of that journey.
I was blessed to join a wonderful group of ladies at the Heart & Soul Writer’s Group tonight and I was greeted with the wonderful smiles of Pat and Lisa asking me how I have been doing and what they can do to help me on my journey of writing and after a while, Angela joined us. She looked transformed from the last time I saw her, and in her arms, she carried the first edition of her story! YaY!!!!!
I have watched and listened and discussed with her over the past year on the few (sadly, very few) visits I have managed to make to this group meeting about her story. It is a story I can closely relate to because of my story. Now, I know I am getting oddly cryptic, but I don’t want to give away her story until she has determined how she wants to present it.
I have heard that writing a book and FINISHING a book can be done, but until tonight, I never witnessed it actually happening to someone I knew. My heart is overrun with joy for Angela and I am so inspired that I have yet another fire in my soul to get my book finished to share with the world.
Thank You, Angela, for sharing your journey with me, and I cannot wait to buy your book! Congrats!!!!
