The past six months have been a whirlwind. In December, when my sister and I went full steam ahead with our book and a business plan I never thought that during the process we would meet so many new people and invite all these new friendships into our lives.
Here we are today, with the debut of our book only days away, and I couldn't feel more supported by the creative community. This group is so positive and encouraging and sincere. I've had dinners and drinks with novelists and memoir writers and mommy bloggers and journalists and shrewd tweeters, all who have opened up about the methodology of their writing or what nourishes them creatively. Irish foodies and high school English teachers and aspiring actresses have contributed their wonderfully crafted true stories to our blog, expanding our audience and helping us to reach new readers. And words of encouragement from people in Australia, England, Canada, and all over the US have landed in our inbox, reminding us that this creative circle truly encompasses the globe.
I'm so grateful to be part of this circle and warmed by the thought that it just has no end.
