I have learned that I am a writer. First, I learned it from all of you, who said that this counted. Who knew?
Then I learned from the two gifted other members of my writing group, Kat and Ariel.
And all along I learned from my sister, Lava, who seemed to call me a writer before I had written anything. (Ahh, unconditional support! Nothing beats it!)
And now I have actually submitted TWO items for publication! I learned about the Chicken Soup for the Soul submission process from Lava, who has had many stories published there, and I did it! Just now!
