Wow! Thank you so much for all your support.
I'm sorry I hadn't checked this thread back for awhile.
I loved all your advice, especially the bit that you don't need to be published to be a writer. If you write, you're a writer.
readermaid ~ I'm totally with you. My words and thoughts have seemed to dry up, and I have difficulty finding uninterrupted time to sit and write.
Setting aside time to blog or journal will be a great start for me. Now all I have to do is make the time.
