#thewrightersway Did I ever tell you about my friends who went from yearning to write books, to being published and so very PROUD of themselves? THAT FEELING is more important than any income, status or prestige claim. THAT FEELING is more important than your fears, worries or concerns. The work that they do, the writing businesses that they run isn't just about how much money they make (though that helps!). It is about the change of Their lives Their self-esteem Their circumstances. These are their stories. I hope they inspire YOU to publish YOUR stories.
