Anjie,
On our next visit I hope you'll let me read your entire list of writings to publish/be heard, etc. Are they online somewhere? Under Momma's writings, etc???
Wow, do I admire the guts you pulled together to create such an amazing set of goals.
Go, girl, go!!!
It's such a thrill to me to be privy to the process a budding writer experiences. I've never been so privileged before. Thanks!
Lovingly,
JJJ
And now I've Dane to add to my list of budding writers.
