We’re all in this together.
“Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great.”
I love this quote. It’s an example of why I started my blog. Not because I need anyones reassurances that I can write or because I’m dying for a pat on the back, but because of the general support the field of writers can provide.
I believe, as Mark Twain so brilliantly pointed out, that we should be helping each other, encouraging one another, not tearing each other down. This is a hard road, a lonely one at times and certainly a soul wrenching one. It doesn’t matter to me if the reader of my blog is the next great author in the making, THE hottest author on the market or a writer just starting out. What matters to me is the support and understanding writers can offer one another through this all-consuming process. It’s simply nice to know that someone else gets it.
To have other writers in similar situations is an invaluable thing. Thanks to all who stop in and especially those who Vote, Like and Comment. You’re appreciated. Wow….over 1,000 hits. Thanks.
