I am on the verge of the biggest success of my life!
This may be an overly optimistic view but I’m in the mood for optimism and positivity and all things shiny and bright… unicorns, rainbows, fairy dust… bring it on.
In my youth I had ambition, but somewhere along the way it got buried under an avalanche of self-doubt.
Now, it’s back and it all began right here.
The combination of events that brought me to writing is too complex to unravel but this blog was the starting point and through it I have become the writer that I am today.
I wanted to thank you all, my WordPress family, for the support and encouragement you’ve given me, for your own writing that has inspired me, for sharing your successes and giving me a belief that my own success is possible.
I am in awe of how things have changed for me in the past year. I honestly cannot remember when I felt so enthused about my life, my life as an individual not as a mum.
When the first of my poems were accepted for publication I was blown away, I thought they were good, I’d been told they were good, but to have this validated by an actual publisher was incredible. When a third poem was accepted by a different publisher, I was overjoyed.
I’m about to submit three more poems for consideration in another anthology through a different publisher and I believe 100% that my poetry will be included, whether it’s one, two or all three of them I’m certain my writing is good enough.
This level of self-belief astounds me and it is this that will drive my success.
