Now, how am I going to tie in my gratitude theme for the A-Z challenge with a post for the insecure writer's support group?? Hmmmm....
I spent the next few years re-writing, and well, the rest is history. The memoir was published in 2009--a huge milestone in my life.
I no longer dread the darkness. I've come to be grateful for the dark times that come as depression for me. It is a signal that something needs to change or something is going to happen. In my writing, the darkness is the time when I am mulling things over and my subconscious is at work. I just need to allow things to gestate.
So, for both the A-Z challenge, and the Insecure Writer's Support Group, today I am grateful for the darkness. It is always always always followed by the Light.
