In 2016, I joined the Inspired Prompt’s crew. Through the experience, I met a group of people who “got” me, unlike my family. Please don’t misunderstand me. Perhaps our families are our biggest fans, but let’s face it when writers mention things like pinch points, plot twists, and character development eyes tend to glaze over.
Writers need people who understand their problems. 😊 That need for understanding is what made Inspired Prompt work for the past eight years. Each week, fellow-writers came together to share ideas and much-needed encouragement through their blog posts and comments.
But like all good things, Inspired Prompt will come to an end this month. So, to all the readers, and commenters, I want to say “thank you” for all you’ve done. You are the reason I showed up and wrote each month. You encouraged me to keep going when I felt like giving up.
And now, I want to encourage you. Don’t let anything get in the way of reaching your goals. If for some reason you miss your target, don’t beat yourself up. Show up and keep writing. Find people and groups who can help you along your way. Take classes and hone your craft. And when you achieve your goals, help others in their endeavors. You won’t regret it. Finally, stay true to yourself. You are God’s gift to this world.
I’m sure we will meet again somewhere in this world of writing. Until then, may God bless you and keep you safe.
Happy writing, dear friend.
