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 - September
This week I am hoping to receive what I pray is the last set of revision suggestions from my editor. I am ready to move this baby out of the womb and into the world. I am actually excited, rather than scared. A teensy weensy bit insecure. Wait a minute, is that the truth? No, I am way more than a teensy bit insecure. But I'm not scared. I just need to get quiet and search deep inside for the answers to my questions: Small press or self-publish? Agent? Illustration or photo for cover (if I self-pub)?
Can I hire someone to help with marketing?
I can do this. I can do this. I can do this. Maybe if I say it enough times, I'll start believing it.
How about you?
