Encouraging Friends

Would you like to know my number one need as a writer? Go ahead, guess.

Own a good computer?

Generate story ideas?

To find an agent, editor, or publisher?

Drum roll, please. My number one need is encouragement. I can write on paper if need be, scan Facebook for five minutes to find story ideas, and go to writer’s conferences to find others to help me.

The one thing as a writer I can’t live without is encouragement. I need family, friends, and like-minded writers to come alongside me and tell me I can make it.

That my words aren’t that bad.

They can be edited.

Encouragement for the days of writer’s block, computer issues, and lost work. I bet you could use it also. So I’m going to share some of my most encouraging friend’s blog posts. Come back often as we will continue to add to this list as we can.

Be encouraged! And write on!
