Welcome to Following the Whispers blog
Thank you so much for taking the time to visit. Hope you enjoy your stay. I blog here whenever I feel the need. This blog was created at the time my memoir came out, in February, 2009. Its motto was: creating a life of inner peace and self-acceptance from the depths of despair. Now, my focus is sharing this journey we call life.
“Only one thing is more frightening than speaking your truth, and that is not speaking it.” Naomi Wolf
“We are called human beings, not human doings.” Wes Nisker, Buddhist teacher
“It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs…(And) if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” Theodore Roosevelt

Insecure Writer's Support Group - February
I'm not insecure this month - I just haven't had time to write. I am not a happy camper when I'm not writing, so I've made it a priority once again. Writing time is going on my calendar at least three times a week. Sacred. Not to be interfered with. It's not that I'm complaining. Life happens. Two back to back bouts of bronchitis and other responsibilities that needed to be dealt with - that stuff just happens. But the longer it goes on that writing isn't a priority, the less likelihood there is of me returning to it with the commitment and energy it needs and deserves.
How about you? Does anything interfere with your writing time?
