As an author who was beginning to wonder if she was washed up, I've found a new day has dawned. No longer am I at the mercy of the powers that be in publishing. I am extremely grateful to Amazon for making it possible for me to share my stories with the world.
The long-term benefits this practice gave me are those that I'm not sure my parents would have expected. Not only did it instill a love of writing, which makes sense, but it did a few other amazing things, too.
Life is about searching for truth; to make sense of this strange and confusing planet we live on, to know why everything is the way it is, to uncover the labyrinth behind the saying, "Everything happens for a reason."
