I admit that I’ve always loved writing and have, at times, entertained the idea of becoming a published author. Blogging, however, helped fulfil that desire. It wasn’t until fellow blogger Benita (BasicallyBenita.com) suggested that I use my blog as the basis for a book that I considered taking my writing a step further.
My husband was instantly supportive of the idea, as was anyone else I mentioned it too. That’s about as far as it got for a long while. But Benita kept nudging me, until at last I gave it a serious start. Even then it was very hit and miss in terms of writing. Gradually though, a purpose began to take shape. After letting it lie for almost a year I picked it up again, finally seeing how the whole thing should fit together. My motivation has kept me diligent ever since.
