On a positive note, I have been corresponding a lot with my sixth grade teacher. I recently spent a lot of time revising the sixth chapter of my manuscript, and somewhere along the way, recalled a story she told my class that I was able to incorporate into my novel. It was such a good feeling to be able to write her and share that I still remember the message she delivered nearly 15 years ago. That is what I call making a lasting impression.
Mrs. F. has delivered a lot of kind words in my direction this past week. It is so nice to hear that someone believes in you. Especially since I know most people doubt the likelihood this endeavor will be successful. And I'm not saying they are wrong, or that I don't have my own doubts. I just feel being supported is much more helpful in finding the strength and motivation to continue moving forward.
