Jason is finishing up his second writing course and has already signed up for the third. I am so thrilled for him, because he is actually making things happen, while I sit and ponder my future as a writer. Anyway, while perusing my own blog, I stumbled upon a silly post that really wasn't meant to be that silly. I was actually rather frustrated, but I used a bit of humor to get through it. I clicked on the comments and saw something that made me smile and made me feel energized to write again. Here's what Jason had to say:
"Please write a novel. Write it in first person. And let me read it during its various drafts. Because I think the literary world is missing out on you and your voice."
That is exactly what I needed - someone who thinks I can do it. So, thanks Jason for not only thinking I can do this, but for completely understanding this obsessive drive to be a writer.
