Re: Somewhere Along the Way
Your attitude about writing is the same as all of us should approach life and I learned this lesson from my youngest son.
When he was 5 he had to get a full leg brace but it never kept him down - he just kept trying and succeeding. With the brace he managed to climb trees, play little league and soccer and participate in a regular gym class and only took it off to swim or take a bath. He even had to wear it with it's attached shoe to bed. He finally got it off in the 5th grade.
I'm proud of the fact that in high school he ended up wrestling, fencing and even playing football (okay mostly sitting on the bench)and went on to going to and getting an engineering degree from The Citadel!
It's amazing the strength you can learn from a child.

Hard work has it's rewards. You achieved your goals and have many readers great books to enjoy.

You were the first author I had the pleasure of meeting and the experience left me speechless (quite a feat, let me tell you). You were in town autographing "Rewriting Monday". The second time I had the pleasure of seeing you, you were autographing "Welcome to Harmony" and I told you what a special treat it had been to meet you the first time. You said "Oh Jill, I'm just a human being". Well, to us readers, you are magical. As you've indicated it took you quite a while to "whip out" that first best seller, but we are so glad that you knew you'd make it "if you tried really, really hard". Weaving your words together is a gift that not everyone has and thank you so much for letting us share them.

I think its wonderful how we as human beings can over come so much in life if we just set our minds to it. You are an example for us all.

You are gifted more than you realize. Not only have you written so many books and won several awards, but you had the guts to be so honest with us about all the hard knocks you took to get where you are. Many writers would have hung up their pens and have gone on to do other things, while you persevered. I, on the other hand, have a book inside of me, but don't have the guts to put pen to paper. Thank you for such an insightful article. It meant such a great deal to me, and just might give me that boost of inspiration!!

I just finished Somewhere Along the Way and can't wait for the next installment from Harmony. You've again written a story that keeps my turning the pages and hoping that I don't come to the end.

Talent can appear with practice and perseverance. We all can write, but not everybody makes a cohesive story with all three parts - beginning, middle and an end. I think that's why I like mysteries, since the ending can be left up in the air.
