The best way to introduce myself is to be blunt. I am a very passionate mother of three crazy boys. They test me daily, drive me nuts and always have to have the last word. And they are why I do what I do.
I have always had a knack for writing, I started in high school as an escape from reality. Eventually, it turned into something I would do in order to help others. Being the only “writer” in the family, it was tough. I not only had to deal with outside sources telling me how I made a mistake, but my own family chose to do the same.
As time went on, my head and all of the rude comments got to me. I stopped writing because I felt I wasn’t good enough to be writing. It went on that way for a few years, until I found myself away from home and not having to hear the negative comments daily.
Out Of Fear
Once I started back into writing as a release of emotion, I found myself writing other things, like short stories. That is when I realized I needed to use my writing to help people. But it really was not that simple. I still had to conquer my fears and push through it.
Although I was writing again, it would still be years before I fully opened up. Fear really did cripple me for years.
The times I really started believing in my writing was shortly after my second boy was born. So of course, having a newborn and a twenty-one-month-old, I learned how to juggle real quick.
Not only was I finding myself juggling my writing with the boys, but going back to school and working part-time proved a tad harder than I thought. But after years, I think I finally have a hold of it.
As time went on and my writing improved, I started to test the waters. I started learning how to be a blogger. Let me tell you, it is not as easy as it may seem. My struggles have been huge and I have worked hard to overcome them.
You will always have roadblocks and struggles. Ultimately, it is all in how you deal with them. I have worked my tail off to get not only the courage but the drive to keep working.
